£80 for the full bike (fair price I think)

(I think) a 1995 Scott Vantage 2.0. I can't seem to find too much info on the net about this bike/year. Even RB does not seem to have any scott archives (not too sought after...or?)

Anyway, the bike is quite mint. It seems to have been ridden on road only, as a commuter. LX Cranks are good cond apart from a couple of teeth on the outer ring are worn.

Previous owner has "de-retrofied" (!!) the brakes/canti's and shifters to acera setup (works well, but not inkeeping with the rest of the bike). Also he seems to have had the "throw oil at it to keep it running" syndrome - the whole bike has a film of greaseover it (see the crank pic!)

Rest of spec can be found here

http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/Bike ... &Type=bike

Any info on the pedals would be useful (cleats one side, flats on the other - shimano branded but no number)

Also suggestions on what to do...clean/restore? break down for parts for another build?

These are shimano branded, not the original tioga's or wellgo's.

Anyway, now need the time to clean, re-lube/grease and put the thing back together again.

Or clean and keep the parts for another build (wheels, cranks, front/rear mech)......decisions decisions.....

I still have my Vantage that I purchased in 95. Bought it in college. It still has all of the original components as well, so if you have any questions on what it was supposed to have feel free to drop me a line. Mine didn't have the solid fork like yours, it had Rock Shox (quantum 21 I believe, but I would have to look again).
