Yup.

Reynolds 653 Magnum (i.e 'oversize'), large (only ever seen the small ones) and faded to almost daft factor one from the original flouro orange.

I know of only 3, this being the 4th. A local bike shop owner still has his, dcarlos has one and there was an ebay one ages ago.

This one is true mansize at around 21/22", full XT, Maguras, Mazocci XC100 - whats not to like?

Who wants pics?

Who believes me that they actually exist in large sizes??

Who would believe that such an item could be found at a car boot sale???
