Popped into halfords today to get a box so i can finally send the fat over to argos for painting. The very friendly and helpful young thruster that works there asked what i wanted it for.
I said i am restoring a old mountain bike, at which he became very interested and asked what it was. He had never heard of it of course, i said it was made in 1990, he said the oldest mountain bike he knew of was a K2 proflex!

Makes you feel old sometimes! :D
