.... but for those brave enough to view, rememebr the poll about ebay etiquette?

well this was the bike I referred to - look at that colour scheme!!!! A right mess if you ask me, and what is going on with the seatpost clamp, not to mention the seatpost being fitted back to front?!?!?!?! :shock:

.... and yeah, I kept it quiet to thwart the oppostioin just in case I was going to bid but in the end auction finished early and I decided I didn't want a bike that yellow.

Well i did have 20:20 Vision lol......... But actually I really like that bike, I love Proflex's anyway, i would have tweaked it a tad but apart from that looks nice 8)

I'm guessing someone approached the seller and sorted a deal outside of ebay?

The seatpost clamp is a triple clamp, seen some on CRC, and the silver thing above is a rear light, not that you would need it lol :)

Is there a linkage missing or is it meant to be like that?

The shock unit works in the reverse so stretches instead of compresses, very unusual set up but worked to a fashion, obviously had limitations.

:D

I think the clamp is a cock ring?

I like it too, with a red or blue seatpost on , i think it would look cool.

it does remind me rather of my orange gringo in yellow red and blue and black colour scheme type tang
