Picked up this fairly tidy beast whilst trawling Facebook Marketplace :facepalm: :roll:

It came minus wheels so will find it some more period correct ones and a little restoration here and there she’ll be grand

Parts of the original STX-RC group are missing as is the original orange embroidered saddle, decals need a little TLC to

But in the whole she’s cool as :mrgreen:

Looks very tidy does that. Good to see the decals have survived as they're usually the first thing to go. 8)

One of the down tube decals is creased and may need gentle surgery!!

May give it a gentle warm and see if will peel up and then re-stick down

That looks pretty good, I quite like these 10th Anniversary models, especially the fork with the rear facing brake mounts.
You might get lucky and be able to save that decal, gently does it!

Nice bike. Looks identical to my old clockwork that I sold a few years back and even has the same tyres. Mine had the same decal crease. Unless a few components have been changed then i dont think its actually my old bike. If you ever choose to sell this then please give me a shout!
