Had the pleasure of supplying the NOS chainset for this NOS 28yr old one :shock: Absolutely stunning bike with perfect geometry. Remember riding all the way down to Evans in south London just to drool over one in the window back in 89.

Been a while, deleted his pm now :facepalm: but the owner was an ex Fisher sponsored racer iirc and had been given the NOS frame. I saw one in good used condition offered for $15500 on ebay a few years ago :shock: . As Anstark said, one of the true greats ( before GF sold out) and a very rare beast. Never ridden one but i dont doubt it rides amazing and probably similar to my 89 FAT with very similar specs.

Thanks M-Power.

That's the nicest example I have seen. I'm partial to Fishers and am about to build the same 89 Procaliber. I'm picking up my frame next week. Initially I got a very well loved / worn out frameset with an ovalised headtube so the build never went ahead. Then I found this beast which I love riding but is close to worn out. So I will build a better version soon utilising my 3rd frame and hoping I can build two (subject to fork fitting) with the trashed frame becoming wall art...
