I know !.....you can't believe it can you ? For sale today we have THE "very close to" :D top of the range model from legandary manufacturer Townsend.

1991 (?) AL CARTER 'BLACK PANTHER' FRAME AND FORK PACKAGE

Made in the same factory as many Gary Fisher Bikes of the same era and with which it shares the same 1 -1/4" headtube.

Cool Matt black and it's in excellent condition given its years. No dents and only the odd scratch and light rust spot here and there. No visible chainsuck or any other such nasties
Includes front mech pulley and the original YST headset. The headset would benefit from a quick regrease and adjustment but it feels fine.

This bike was originally spec'd with a full DX groupset and RM20s

Sizes
Seat tube - 15.5" C-C and 16.75" C-T
Top tube - 20.5" C-C
Seatpost - Dunno...but it looks around the 30mm ish. Looks like it was stuck in the frame at one point.

All threads etc in tip top knick.

Price is £20 collected from SO32 Hants (Cash, PP gift or normal PP and add 5% for fees).......or £32 delivered! *NOW SOLD*

I would really like this [for nostalgias sake], let me find out how much the courier charge will be. :D

I'll be in touch.
