For sale: 2008 THORN XTC.

Purchased by me from the original owner who bought it new in spring 2008.

I know Thorn didn't sell many of these at the time as they were ridiculously expensive.

My Thorn Tourer comes with:

18 inch frame.

"Virtual" Top Tube 20 inches.

Actual Seat tube length "C to C" 18 inches.

Reynolds 725 Tubing.

Shimano Deore 27 speed Hollowtech chain set ( 3 x 9 ). 170 mm. 44-32-22 rings.

Shimano Deore LX front and rear derailleurs.

Shimano cassette. 11 - 32t.

Sun Rims CR18 36h front and rear.

Shimano LX Deore Hubs.

Shimano XT Shifters and brake levers.

Shimano Deore LX V brakes. (they are superb).

Specilaized Nimbus EX 26 x 1.5 tyres.

MKS GR9 platform pedals.

2 x bottle cages. Frame has 3 bottle braze-ons in total.

Brooks B17 leather saddle.

Orbit XL II head set.

SKS long mudguards.

Zefal HP X2 frame pump. (It's actually very good).

Rear Thorn rack with saddle bag. (Not photographed).

Straight bars. I do have a pair of nice butterfly bars that I will throw in if the buyer prefers this set up. Cabling fits both.

Forks have braze-ons for a front rack.

Has had new inner and outer cables throughout.

Here is the link for the sizing. Look under short top tube frame 90 size S for details:

Full Retro finish - Option 6.1
Option 1.1 - Any single Gloss, Metallic
or Flam colour with Vinyl graphics
(choice of colour).
Option 2.1 - Any single Gloss, Metallic
or Flam colour with Stencilled paint
graphics (choice of colour). Stencilled
graphics give a high quality and
durable finish & more colour choice.
Option 3.1 - Any two Gloss, Metallic
or Flam colours in a faded finish with
“Thorn” on the down tube and model
name on the top tube in stencilled
paint graphics.
Option 3.2 - Any three Gloss, Metallic
or Flam colours in a faded finish (as
Sturburst but no airbrushing) with
“Thorn” on the down tube and model
name on the top tube in stencilled
paint graphics.
Option 4.1 - “Billiard cue” - headtube,
fork crown, and front of both top and
down tubes in secondary colour (eg.
yellow, white or cream); cut out in
fork crown, “Thorn” stencilled on the
front of the top tube, bike name
stencilled on the front of the down
tube and the rest of the frame in
the main colour (eg. French Blue,
Ferrari Red, Maroon, Brunswick
Green, Navy Blue or Black). The join
between main and secondary colour
is achieved with four long points in
each colour... hence “Billiard cue”.
Option 6.1 - “Full Retro finish”...
Identical to the “Billiard cue” but with
the addition of Celtic bands at the
top and bottom of the seat tube and
a “V” flash between the two bands all
in the secondary colour.

Mine is the 6.1.

There is some touching up of the frame around the head badge.

I know the bar ends might not be to every ones taste, but personally, I've found them very useful!

Collection would be preferred from the GL2 area of Gloucestershire but I will post it for an additional £35 to standard UK post Codes.

Payment is by Bank Transfer or cash on collection.


£595.
