In a few weeks I'm upping sticks and moving to Whistler, Canada (gonna live the dream) :D Unfortunately it's just not feasable to take all my bikes with me.. so as much as it's going to hurt me I need to sell the Amp.. :cry:

I absolutely love this bike.. she rides sooo nice! So light and so so so fast! I've only had the pleasure of taking her out a few times over the winter though as I didn't want to get her too shitted up.. so trust me when I say this bike is in PERFECT condition!

I'm putting it on here as I'd like to see her go to a good home but I've only got 3 weeks left so she will have to go on ebay pretty soon if none of you guys want her..


Here's the link to my original readers bikes thread, check it out for the full spec list..

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17182&highlight=

I've made a couple of changes since that original post namely a Risse Racing Genesis air shock, a Control Tech 100mm stem and some very pretty Real brake levers. All of these upgrades were made to make the bike more ridable.. because this is a bike to be ridden!

I'm thinking a price of around the £500 mark is very reasonable considering the condition.. and trust me this is quite a bit less than she cost me to build!

Here are a few pics taken yesterday showing how she looks at the moment..

Lovely looking bike - hate to say it but you'll probably have to strip/split it to realise £500!

I have £300 saved up so far in my modern XC FS fund that you could very easly talk me out of.

Beautiful bike, good luck with the sale!

It has to go pretty soon guys as I'm leaving the country in 3 weeks! So i can't split or anything like that. I reckon £500 is a fair price as it cost a lot more than that to build, and it is in excellent condition. Like I said I REALLY don't want to sell it but I'm afraid I have to.. :cry:
