I've been fortunate enough to own a few Intense bikes; tracer, uzzi, tazer, but never had a shot at an M1. Ridden one but never owned one.

Picked up a nice M1 which is a 98 or 99. Will build it up and then upgrade/renew as and when.

One to ride and keep as a wall hanger.

They look brilliant frames, used by some many pro's over the years. Definitely a classic.

Could have cleaned it first before sending! I'll go for '99 as it hasn't got the canti studs and my catalogue is with the printers with my M1!
Very nice they are. My old one floated down DH3 at Aston Hill when I had it.
What are the other bits like?

It's a '98. 151's as well! You got to lose that integrated yoke though. Get a "proper" one on there.

Got the same rims myself and want some more rim stickers to replace those that are on there, as they are a bit tatty.
I would go for Hope just for spares and they are easier to look after than Hayes that I have worked on. Palmer used Magura's and Hayes, so it depends on where you want to go with this.
