mmmmm, i always used to want a Heckler. that one looks to be in remarkable condition too.

I wouldnt know what to put on it, I can spend a lifetime changing my mind! but some black Thompson/Syncros finshing kit would look quite tidy 8)

The frame is practically immaculate, minus a couple stone chips
i have begun putting odd parts on it.... ive got some syncros bits for sale on the forum at the moment. they wouldnt have look right anyway, the xc forks look horribly out of place as well but i'm sure as i swap bits around i'll find a setup i like eventually 8)

That is lovely mate, and a great price.

Is it definately a 16" like in the listing - looks a little bigger to my untrained eyes.

its an 18" i didnt expect the listing to be spot on as the seller was selling on behalf of a relitive. however the top tube is very short so it does feel smaller

No that's spot on. Looking forward to seeing this built.

Loving the polished finish.

Check the serial number, first two numbers are the year on my Tazmons.
I'd think it is later than 98 because of the disc mounts.

Looks rather a tidy frame, id say a bit later on the date too as it has disc mounts.

Should build up rather nice 8)
