Looks ok but IMHO the starting price is about £80 above it's value.

Not sure how this would have been £2k when new though.....maybe the owner bought a Team Issue Ti prototype and painted it to look like a Muirwoods.

Nice set of Smokes on it though

Spot on 1989. Pre Zolatone.

I bought my PM in 1989 for £440. IIRC the range then went Muirwood, Palisades Trail, Bear Valley, Pine Mountain and thn beyond my dreams and Access card.

I think the Muirwoods was about £240 in 89.

I guess some drunk in the pub has told the seller:

"There's a website for old bikes now. They're worth a fortune they are. Some of them are worth over £2grand"
