Its even still got the cassette guard on it! Very nice find and the definition of mint.

Worth it in parts alone and love the colour. Beautiful.

Looks to be 18”..

bought in 96 - while MTBiking was booming - ridden one or two season and then the owner lost interest and the bike had to spent the following years in the garage or in the cellar and now it's up to us to lay our hands on that beauty - original saddle would be a nice add on :)
