I've been offered an S Works in pretty good condition in my size for £90. Suntour XC gears, DX/Araya wheels, XT shifters and chainset. It's an early model, steel, no rust, burgundy, possibly 93.

I wasn't really looking for another bike currently, but is this too good a deal to miss?

Is that a 92 - 94 S Works Steel 8) ? If so yeah, just look out for rust.

It IS a good deal!

But look out for dents... the steel of these frames is really thin!

Thanks for the replies. It's now mine.

Looks some people have a lot of love for early Specializeds.

Here's some pics of the bike, but I'm afraid I'm not going to buy it now. Common sense has told me if I buy this it'll just put back even further my other builds so I'll use the money on bits for them.
