Nice. Someone I know had one from new back when and it came with some tangy RST triple clamps I think. Maybe wrong. Anyway, that looks top.

Well, on car boot sale duty this morning and attached to a sorry looking (but remarkably light) mystery steel frame was a set of slightly crusty but sound RS Pssssylo SL and some Orange Supercross II bars.

Yoink!

this frame is 6061 so is identical to my 1998 Mount Vision which I used to love riding. Back then, forks weren't so great and the Speed Spring Judy XC were not up to the Fox Vanilla rear shock.

Now, that Shock Works with its adjustable damping is rather plush and the addition of the cosmetically challenged Psylos has brought an old frame right up to date.

I'm looking forward to a good blast out sometime soon, prob wednesday.
