I've a chance of getting a Super 8 frame with shock and the elusive 160mm spaced, 14mm bolt rear wheel PLUS a Mavic on 20mm bolt through front for what I thought is a reasonable £200 (hopefully I can get a few £'s knocked off).

I'd need to get Monster T's also to suit the big-boned build.

Can anyone recommend the frame bearing in mind the rear wheel isn't made anymore?

I had one of these in around 2005, great bike... lovely frame. Check the swingarm for cracks, mine was fine but I read about a lot of people cracking them around the bracing. I'm sure you'll be fine with the rear wheel, you'll always be able to get bearings for general servicing!

It's the best pic I've seen of a bare frame.

Perfect BB for my MRP 8)
