The original invoice is a nice touch. He paid £187 extra to upgrade to Maguras and XTR shifters from cantis and XT, which seems like a sound move.

I believe these were the last titanium Marins made by Litespeed, before they gave the contract to TST. The only issue here is that, however well-preserved the rest of the bike might be, the Manitou M4 can't really be working 'as it did on the day it was purchased' as claimed. After ten years of disuse, it looks a bit short and it's hardly likely that can be working at all, surely?

:/ well according to him they work as the day he had them . Disappointing in that he either cant tell the difference (or they never worked) or is just ignorant (or lying!) a bit disappointing really as i miss my old OE spec team
