Hello all, I have been visiting this site for a couple of years now but recently joined.
I live in the North East and the NY Moors has been my stomping ground for the last 25 years. Back then I couldn't afford a Saracen Tufftrax like my mate so found an old Ridgeback in the back room at Colin Armstrong's bike shop in Middlesbrough. It was equipped with non-indexed suntour gears and bullmoose bars. Sadly later sold without permission by my Dad at a car boot sale.
If anyone has one for sale, let me know.
I currently have an 11 year old Cannondale hardtail with Headshok, an almost new 'Dale RZ120 2, and a Delta V which I rescued from the tip and am currently turning into a white version of a Bad Boy.
Recently I nearly sold the 1987 Muddy Fox Courier which has been in the rafters of my garage for a few years, but Epic1400's excellent thread inspired me to do a full resto on it. I've bought a few bits and pieces and the frame and forks go for refinishing next week, but I still need to source a few things including wheels, chainset and decals. I will photograph the pile of bits before the frame goes away and start a thread to document the elementry mistakes I will no doubt make.
I really appreciate the help given by this site so far and I'm sure there will be more to come. Cheers.
