Great little thread this, loving it...! I still remember the purple and white MF courier being the bike to have in the late eighties, then there was the episodes of streetwise (remember that anybody?) where everybody was riding them 8) I even have half of a muddy fox wheel disc/cover in the folks' back garden...I'll retrieve it once the other half appears.

Thinking about it, my next bike will probably have to be one :D

BTW, if anybody needs it, I have an almost complete 6/7 speed suntour groupset for grabs which was more or less standard kit on 88-89 'foxes (chainset, mechs, shifters and brake levers). It's tatty but serviced and working and on the for sale thread somewhere :wink:

I'm just stripping down my Courier at the mo ready for a paint and then a rebuild. Mine's pretty much original except for the tyres but it will need a new seat. VERY heavy and a strange position compared to modern geometry.

One went on eBay a couple of weeks back for £102 in average condition.

Here are some current pictures of my Seeker Mega (I really want the Sorcerer Mega as the paint in lovely but the Seekr will do). I have all the original bits still but have put the wheels (Wolber AT-18's on XT Hubs) off my old CB Anteaus on with the Scwalbe Slicks for commuting, the WTB Rocket Saddle was more comfortable than the Muddyfox Pawprint one. Only had chance to take it into work once but it rode nicely.

One as standard.

There was one that came in a white with purple fade on the front end it may have been a slightly later one though.
