Don't really want to sell this as I always wanted one too, but also wanted a Kona and got one of those now. It's a 16", really could do with respray or touching up, depends what you're wanting to do with it. Usual flaky paint but no cracks or dents and I put a rear wheel in it to check, it's dead straight too.

Don't care if it doesn't sell, but would like back the £60 (posted) it cost me from memory, with the headset reducers included. Have more pics if you're interested. It's bright red, not orange as it looks in these.

Just out of interest what's the steerer diameter of the pepperoni forks?

Early (1990/91 IIRC) was 1", steel.
1992 (IIRC was 1 1/4, with an aluminium threaded steerer. However these were recalled to be fitted with steel steerers. There are quite a few around that were never sent back, and they should be structurally ok, so long as 1) the thread wasn't stripped during install and 2) a poorly fitting stem wedge wasn't heaved up so tight it flared the steerer.

Thanks for the fork info. I had an idea they did them as 1 1/4 I"ll be on the lookout for one then.
