just had a look on ebay and came across a giant martin hawyes frame limited edition 500 ever made
any way so the seller has modded it abit he stripped the paint rawwed it metal finish
if that was not bad enough he then goes on to say he has removed the v brake bost/mounts completely done good job apparently
why why why why ????
so not only has recked a lovely paint job seems no one has told him the disc mount on those frames are weak as hell and crack or snap clean off big problem with them
well 1 less of the 500 still left what a shame
anyone else come across any thing like this??
Item number: 200821512106
