If you know these frames, you know they are over £1500 new.
I've had this about a year, and bought it from the original owner who had it from new in 2007.

Black finish, with very little in the way of marks. Just a few rubs and scuffs.
No dents or cracks, and the Manitou swinger shock works perfectly.
I have just replaced all the linkage bearings with high quality SKF bearings, so the rear end is smooth and tight.
I had extra bottle bosses professionally fitted on top of the top tube and under the downtube, and a set of bosses to accept a crud catcher. This was for a long-distance ride I did, and they proved most useful.
It also comes with a spare set of factory decals if you ever want to get it refinished.
£350. yes I know, it's a giveaway.
Pace RC 39 Xc forks. 100mm travel. Super light with carbon lowers. Stanchions have plenty of anodising wear, but they work perfectly.
The remote lockout is a bit temperamental, but a service should see that right.
A total bargain at £80.
