That's an early Heckler frame, see the braces bridging the down & seat tube by the BB/pivot cluster and V-brake only.

Good colourway too, "Speed Yellow" is what Porsche call this .......

Enjoy!!

Sorry dude! :twisted:
Only reason I wanted it was I think they had a yellow one in MBUK waaay back.

*By the way, I'm faced with the prospect on an £80 train ticket to collect it unless anyone (including the girlfriend and her car) wants to help....?

Nice try Mr ti, but i'm ok.

Good stuff, enjoy it! I've always wanted one from seeing the Stiff adverts in MBUK circa 1998...

Not that I need another frame any ways :oops:

You are no longer my friend :x

Me own fault,two of the questions about the cranks were from me,i should have pressed for postage it seems.

But well done :D i hope its all ok,at least the shock is easier to find than a risse :lol: :(

Indeed, my hard earned pocket money at the time would only stretch to a Merlin Malt 1...

And the best thing about a Heckler? You could specify what colour you wanted each end. I used to have a brochure and it said something like blank frame, choose colour: red, yellow, green, polish... Whatever... That's why you rarely see two the same.
Anyone else spotted the white one on eBay?

Well done on winning at a good price, but if he is now going to post then that is a bit silly by the seller, as I asked the same and he never got back to me, and I imagine he would have had a lot more bidders if he had just offered it in the first place!

Bad news for him, good news for you it seems :lol:

Seller hasn't definately agreed on postage yet, so it could still go pear shaped. I get that parts of Wales are pretty isolated, so we've agreed to look into postage options (availability of a box and prices)

I've been there a few times, but as its a 4 hour drive from my house didnt fancy an 8 hour journey!

It is pretty isolated and in the woods around there, but still only 30 mins or so from Chester (from memory).

All times are UTC [ DST ]
