I've posted this bike before, have had it a few years now and keep tinkering with it so I thought I'd share. it's a 1992 Clockwork with a bit of Suntour XC pro and ltd, magura brakes and a few nice retro bits here and there as and when I feel the urge to change something.

Today I've added some purple renthal sub 130 bars (thanks Jimo) as I'm moving the hotrods to the new prestige build. I don't think I've got enough purple going on yet... might have to try a bit harder

To Brocklander, or anyone else...
Do you actually want one of these ?
I've got a frame sitting in the garage.
Admittedly the condition is poor (sun faded, some scratches from use, maybe some rust spots, and a handful of 'vintage' mbuk stickers on it).
It's pretty much just the frame although I may have a set of rock shocks that fit (IIRC 1" headset) but the elastometers have long gone.

Anyway, long story short - it's in Devon and if there's a new home out there for it (even if you just want to turn it into a retro wall lamp) it can be yours for postage/delivery costs. (It would be nice for it to go somewhere someone can appreciate it for what it is/was)

Otherwise it's going to the local bicycle recycling charity.

Cheers

Hi,
What size is it and how much?
I had one of them back in the day...until it got nicked while I was signing on FFS!
Cheers

I suspect it's a small.
I'll see if I can check and grab a pic or two this weekend.

As for price - free if you can collect, otherwise whatever it'll cost me to get it to you. I'm not really into retro (unless someone can find my old Dale Killer V 900, the rigid one in polished Alu) but it seems a shame for it to end up collecting dust if there's someone out there who actually 'wants' it.
