I almost went and bought this earlier today as its fairly local to me and frankly seems cheap. The seller says it has no cracks but its painted so harder to spot in my mind. It does appear to be tidy and he also says it has seen very few miles in its life. Make your own minds up :roll:

He was probably inundated with loads of messages asking for him to hold it while courier arrangements were made and then the penny dropped :lol:

I bought this and collected it yesterday. It's been used but is dent and crack free (I took a very long, close and careful look) and I'm the 3rd owner, the guy I bought it off had it from 1995 and it's birthday is the 27-Sept-94.

Paint is original as it's a Manitou Comp.

Been after one for a while to sit with my Manitou FS Bikes, once built I will show you, prob going to use my M950 and some Spinergy Spox although I know it's not quite period but going for a stealthy look but post pics as and when it's done but many other projects to do first. Questions is do I put some Manitou black forks on it (need to source) or do I use some existing RC35s... hmmm.
