Awaiting a downtube decal from Gil, but here is my recently acquired 1989 Stumpjumper.

I will be keeping it like this; clean, simple, light :wink:

Yep, bought it for the other half but it was even too small for her! So I robbed some bits off it for my other bikes and sold some of it including the frame on ebay.

Ah, thanks Simon. Glad you're happy with it and thanks for the nice feedback! Wish it was big enough for my better half. It's the frame I've also been after (but I want a bright red 17/18"). Can you send me a pic when it's all back together please? Cheers - Tim.

I was also after that for my son, you beat me in the auction :( - at least it's gone to another retro biker. will be good as a SS.


That's my old colour scheme on your rockhopper oaep7, bring back a lot of memories. I had the 88 comp version.

this was it...

Well,

this was mine before I stripped it. I think that now she must really hate Kleins. My first MTB after a 7 yrs break.

I still have most of it, but miss the place for another bike :cry:

Made a start on the build today, Just got to get a few more bits before i strip it and give it the final build.

Bought some bits from here and some from Ebay which i think were from Retrobike members 8)

All in all i dont think its cost me much over £150 not bad for an M2 Stumpy.

To say its dinky would be an understatement!!!
