Its in several bits justnow lol

Managed to get it all apart except from getting the seatpost free!! :evil:

Its evidence of it being stashed in loft for the past 3-4 years!

I will get some pics up once its looking a bit better & in one piece again

Whats the state of the forks and brakes,reckon a bleed and general service clean up would sort them or are they ok
From the pics the forks looked in pretty good condition

The bolt that screws into the axle was seized but one of the technicians at my work was able to free it

So the forks (once i get a new axle bolt for them) are sound,

Brakes are fine, (Hope 3 & a mini Mono) a quick bleed and clean up and all pistons are moving nice and freely 8)

Needs a new front tyre, and seatpost once (if I can get this damn one out)

Its turning in the frame, (and its cracked) but just wont bloody come out!!

The middleburns are fine :wink:

The 44 tooth ring is way too much for the sort of playing around this thing is gonna get as is the rear cluster, very close ratio, looks like a roadie cassette :roll:
Definately built with coming downhill (VERY) fast :lol:

Headset & bottom bracket are all fine and will be used again

Was definately a good buy, but needs a full respray or powdercoat as the paintwork has had its best

Plan is to try and get it up and running for thursday, as me and its new owner are both on a day off from work on Thurs so might take it and Mr O up the Bings :wink:
