Do you have a 90 catalogue?


I sure do - it’s the one I drooled over nightly whilst saving up my weekend job wages for months back in the late summer of 1988 and early 1990!

I've seen the scans of the 90 catalogue on here. Are there any more photos of the dark green kiliflyer in there? I have one here that needs restoring but no decals on it.

This is my 93 kilo xtr elite at present. Being built how I want rather than factory spec.
Not sure whether to go flat bar or risers though?

finish building it and ride it with both, it's not too painful to swap with the open front stem

It's not too bad to be honest, it's just that the Trekker is in really great shape so makes the others look worse! :roll: The Tufftrax was the first of the three I got and I was really happy with the condition after a clean up.

My original 89 Tufftrax I had from new suffered from having most of the top tube decal rubbed off. Blame the paper round for that!

So, am I right in thinking that the graphics on all models have the same basic colour scehemes (other than the model names) - but look slightly different due to teh base colour they are applied on? It seemed to me in the catcalogue and from memory that the teh graphcs apart from teh top tube were all the same? I am wondering if Gil might have an alterative set from which to base things on - he says he is too busy to create fresh ones right now...

It's not something I noticed bitd but yes, the 1989 decals are exactly the same and the same colour except for the model designation and decal for the tubes used which is obviously model dependent.
