Ooh, ooh, ooh, please can I be the first person of the year to ask, "is it a Zaskar"?



Sorry to spam up your thread with sillyness, I can't be of any use to you in finding out what it is.

I think I mentioned on Facebook but cannot find the post.
It's a generica Merlin/Sunn/Checker Pig and probably others who branded that style of frame.

Serial number is new info, but first the 1997/8 era well.

What you can't see is that it has Tanges (or similar) twisted tubing thingy.

The seller is looking for around £130 could probably get it for £100.
