I have offered the bloke 40 quid which i reckon he will take, im thinking to buy it for the forks brakes and wheels. if the drivetrain cleans up then thats a bonus but im not sure on the model of the forks and i know i had to invest 50 quid into my jr t's to get them working again so if i had to do that for these it makes it not so good.
I was only going to bin the frame it looks like a barracuda tech300 but im suprised at the level of componentry judging by the bso type frame.
dunno, what do you guys think?

For £40 I reckon give it a go Stoker ride brakes, Z series forks, Titec bezerker saddle, and some salvageable Deore should make it worthwhile :D
