Wow! Let me bore you for a moment! :o

I had a frame that looked like that back in 97, I worked all summer to pay for it, built it and two weeks later left it outside a shop to buy fags while on the way to a downhill. It was gone, I was 16 and heartbroken :( (Didn't last long, parents felt so bad bought me LTS)

I honestly have not seen that frame in 15 years! :D :D
Looking through my files the stolen advert I put up is titled 'DDG-Stolen.doc' so it must be a DDG of some kind..

edit: While googling I found this lol : http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=202079

Nah but I know where mine went but I just couldn't get it back (without blood spilt)

I'm in Swansea.

It's great looking at the pics cos I lost mine so long ago I was having trouble remembering what it looked like. That pivot is so high and they put the bloody bottle holder on the back of the seat tube! :(

Have you bought it?
