Apparently handed into the bike shed[recycle] in Glasgow
Its in the loft so it was a bit dark.Its a dark green colour with headshock has F500 but thats about all i can see.The sus unit looks like its in sore need of a major service
The retrobike sticker in on the front just above the lower race of the headset
Not a recent hand in ,was given before my time

I thinking of taking it on as a project for them,i'd obviously need loads of help with the headshock possibly even some free spare parts :)
It would then be sold in their shop to help fund the recycling project.

Who handed it in ? :? Fess up 8)


I'll get some pics next time im there

Headshok is a nightmare stack of bearings iirc, there was an article on here showing a strip down and I think an exploded diagram.

I think it was the sheldon one I saw, the number of bearings is frightening, don't do it on the front lawn.
