Having had several changes of mind, not helped by the fact the Univega build I have ongoing is proving more appealing, means this is know sadly not wanted.

98/99 UFO med frame in Pearl Orange. IS disc mounts and brake bosses. IN VGC..with some minor scuffs, righthand Orange logo partially missing...Bushes OK..will inc some new ones ( reputedly UFO ones ) Original shockwave shock, manitou Xvert Es..seatclamp.
( boss blankers not inc ) and a new Manitou Metel shock.

£200 collected + £15 for delivery.

Or would swap for a nice set of modern 130/40mm XC/AM forks with LO etc.
Fox Talas, Pace RC 41, Manitou Minutes

They only came in med and large..this is a med...I am 5 10 with shortish legs...and its fine for me..plenty of standover due to design.

There is geometry in the 98 Orange cat on here.

Bump for this.

its still in bits, but may get built up this week if no takers. ( or not ...)

I am after a modernish hardcore/heavyduty hardtail frame...must have discmounts, be able to take a 140 fork.. and be around a 17-18 in..( standover approx 29" )

Would consider full bike, and could supply the UFO with all its original bits.

WTB wheels & Tyres, LX m570, Orange finishing kit.

Back up as I prefer the ride of my Univega.

Now has new Manitou Metel shock fitted.

Wanted as before a trail hardtail frame/bike. Orange, Cove, Santacruz etc...


So swap or would sell at £200 to inc new shock/OE shock/ Fox Vanilla shock, spare bushes, and original headset.


I can include most of the original parts if somewhen want a full swap/trade.

Ooo, gold M10 blankers :shock: don't suppose you'd part with them? Think they're the last missing piece of Kiran's build 8) I can swap for black, blank or with hose guide...?
