Park the price (!), that's one of the finest 96 frames I've seen for a long, long time. On the face of it, it looks free of dents which is super-rare - green (94 of 96) Explosif's seem to come with a standard top-tube dent.

I have the same frame, without dents. I could make the same bike in about twenty minutes from my parts bins hehe.

One of the few frames still on my want list.

This is a nice example, shame its not the frame only as most parts would have to go. Its got a few touch-ups too and a bit of rust around the headtube, one of those frames you would have to see in person to check it out properly.

I keep trying to get around to selling mine off but time always seems to be against me at the moment. I have a green '96 and a gold '97. Hanging in the loft. I've mentioned it before here and I keep threatening to sell them but I never get around to it hehe. I have LOADS of stuff to sell off but just can't get away from 'Life' to work on sales.
