Hi All,

Here it is another FSR, I was told it is a 1999 Enduro?
I was looking for a full sus bike to swap the parts out from an old bike (Townsend) and then upgrade like some of the realy cool one's on this site. I have just taken delivery of this...

It has had a hard life as you can see from the cut up seat tube and shock mount.
Image
Also cable stops are damaged.

Not going to be just a parts swap.

Cheers,

Nik

That looks like the one that was sold and relisted on ebay. Was keen but thought it was a bit too much like hard work!

Watching with interest, should all be fixable fairly easily I reckon.

Has the section under the seat been chopped up to fit some crazy rear shock ?

you're going to need a shock linkage for that or it's not going anywhere.
