Hello everybody

Picked this up for £45.

It'll stay rigid and keep most of the parts just with a bit more green!

Ha!

It was from an older chap that didn't really know much about it.

It's been ridden without a crown race after the z3's were swapped for the p2's.

Not far though as the lower cup isn't marked particularly.

Rear brake needs attention and tyres are cracked.

Think it's just been in a shed a long time.

Collected from the guys house in person, good eBay feedback for unrelated items.

Didn't seem dodgy at all...

nice find. The head set is worth more than that on its own.

Good score, yeah glow in the dark decals.

Like tintin said, the headset is worth the price paid, also the wheels, and the brakes, and the chainrings 8)

Just noticed, no front caliper, did it come with one?

Nope, no front brake!

Picked one up for £25 off eBay.

Need to up-date the pics...

CK headset pinched for a budget yeti 575 build.

Replaced with a green Onza Mongo.

Also added green wildgrippers front and rear.

Have some cheap Z4s but they’re classic blue so might ruin the look?

Also bought some modern wide bars in green which would look out of place but make it more likely to get ridden!

Hands up who thought these were pronounced Faoe-faoe? Just me? Probably.

It's Pa-ho-e Pa-ho-e!

What a bargain

I've got a Kili with decals similar to those

Mine proper glow in the dark after being under a bright light to charge them up.
