Hi.
Can anyone remember the colour combinations that this model was available in? My own was white with coffee rear forks and part front forks. Front forks were 75% chrome. I have another original Mass Start 100 frame which is mainly blue frame with chrome front forks. Was there ever a combination of what I can only describe as light orange frame with full chrome forks and black rear forks/dropouts?

Kind regards.
Tristar

I do like that colour combination. If I was having a frame refurbished I could very easily choose it.

My Sun has been through a number of major changes now, with better wheels, gears and transmission added. A really great bike to ride.
