Ok, first of all this is on the understanding that Mrs History Man does not find out.

As I love my MF FS was thinking of getting a rigid of similar period to compliment it. It would need to be fairly big and sturdy (6ft3' 17st) and pre 98.

Any suggestions or rarities I could aim for? Looking to ride it so condition not too important as I quite like careworn.

Any good or suggestions please. Thanks in anticipation

And yes I'm ready for the one liners !

Pov = poverty, I think the poster infers the specification of the ebay bike is not good.

Felicitations and appreciation for your eloquent explanation of unfamiliar abbreviation.

So is that it? Alu Pro or nothing? Surely my net could be cast a little broader?

There was a lovely Seeker on Ebay for £70, dont know if its still there but it looked pretty mint and original.

They had a good spec BITD. I was very tempted myself as they are very good bikes. Just that getting 3 bikes in a week would of been a bit excessive lol

I have a large 88 Explorer that im getting rid of. Once i've built it back up after taking it apart to give it a good clean. In really good condition, but not all parts are original.
