Here's mine, 1989 or 1990, 100% original.
I bought it just because of the color.
It rarely gets used because of ... the color :oops:
And because of that silly long stem too !

Great to see this thread after all these years. Good to see the early MF's.

Up to 90/91 for me. After that they lost their way a little (IMO).

Love Kaiser's Courier Prestige. Looks good.

Just bought a Courier Mega frame to build up a bike for a mate. Not much knowledge of MFs, what was the hierarchy of those late 80s early 90s models? :? :?

The Courier Mega if it's a 91 (I think it was yellow in colour) sat two below my Sorcerer with Exage 400LX components, not sure what the frame was made of but probably 4130 Cro-mo. essentially a well made and strong if not particularly light frame (like most Foxes of the period).

They last well which means they quite often surface on here.
