Hello,

Found this photo of one of my dads old bikes, Its pretty poor quality and as far as I am aware it a S works and had m900 xtr but can anyone name its actual model and year and if its an original colour? (He changed the forks from rigid)

Maybe a potential future project :D

Cheers

daj

He was awesome 8)

Hmmm possibly earlier than 94 as I went to college from 94 to 97 and he brought it off a college mate who had it when we started our course :?

Cant find anything in the archive

It was the fork that mage me think 94 - it is a manitou 4 - like in the pic below of a 1994 Manitou FS.

Also the kit could be m737 which would put it around that time.

Where is it hiding?

it was sold a long time ago adie (to make way for a brand new Cannondale super v!! ) :roll: , Was just thinking it could be cool if I found a similar one in same colour

hmmmm your right about the fork dad brought it brand new so that would be in 1994 possibly 1995 to split hairs which ties in with me starting college and buying the bike off a new college mate. It most deff was equipped with m900 and the bike was 2nd hand (I very much doubt it was brought new by college mate either) so it must pre-date 1994

Just looked on bike pedia the cannondale super v 900 first came out in 1995

Project for Dad's are the best.

Yes I know it's a road bike, but it's my favourite project by a country mile. I endorse your thoughts!!
