Advertised as 90s but it is a 1989 as in the catalogue with the Mountain LX components etc.
Looks in quite good nick and original.

That looks smashing.

He is also offering free postage and packing. Can that be right? Surely not?

I'm so glad it's way too big for me!! :wink:
My dad had one of these BITD and I loved it. Gutted when he sold it as it was a perfect spare bike for me! :lol:
OP is correct, it's an '89.

How much is one worth? I've seen one local to me and was considering it?

It's difficult to say "How much is 'one' worth" as there are so many factors to consider. That said, I would bid up to £90 for this model. I would go another £30 if it were a nice original condition Zolatone.

Lol...every bike made back then was too big! My first real mtb in 89 was 23" and I was at the time '5 7" :-)
