1997 Explosif. Very nice Columbus Nivicrom tubing with double ovalised top and down tubes. If he posted |I would have snapped it up!

didn't the 1997 Exlosif come with bouncy forks, or was that still an option at that point?

If I'd known that was an Explosif I'd have bought it like a shot - damn! I don't live that far from Brum...oh well too late now...

tee hee...

Sat in my kitchen now :) Definately unloved, but hey, its an Explosif, its £55!

I did buy it to salvage parts for other bikes and flog the frame on, but having picked it up... its actually a 17" and fits me like a glove so I'm now thinking that I should restore it myself. Damn light aswell!

All parts are original except the wheels and saddle as far as I can tell.

I would post pics, but my 'host site' won't let me upload at the mo.
