Hi mate.... interested in this for a friend... but I have a few questions. Actually quite a lot, sorry! They are all to find out how much I have to put into it to make it a nice runner again.

1) What length top-tube c-c?
2) Does the rear suspension linkage have any play side to side?
3) Does the rear shock or forks have any marks on the stantions?
4) Is the headset and wheel bearings smooth?
5) How worn are the rims?
6) How worn in the drivetrain?

Thanks very much mate..

Rob

1) What length top-tube c-c? 21"

2) Does the rear suspension linkage have any play side to side? No expert on suspension but seems fine to me


3) Does the rear shock or forks have any marks on the stantions? No marks I can see on stanchions

4) Is the headset and wheel bearings smooth? Headset seems good. Front wheel bearings seem fine, rear ones could do with looking at.


5) How worn are the rims? Front rim is fine, rear concaved

6) How worn in the drivetrain? Rings seem fine to me but no expert again.

The bb needs changing , strip it and rebuild the bike is needed. The forks could do with new seals. I have a set I can include. If needed.
