Now I remember why Filthy Rabbit were so derided back in the day!

Although it had no suspension I seem to recall that the British Eagle Boss had more steel than a suspension bridge.

Haha!

I think they recycled the name as rock'n'roll... And lo and behold one appears!

Names get recycled around a lot the 'Boss' name has been on loads of different bikes

I've seen an early Boss with XTR! It was an Aluminium tubed frame

In the early days British Eagle were a proper bicycle company who actually made bikes!

I think it was round '93 that it all fell apart and Falcon bought them up. All pure poo from then on
