Very rare! The 'booze' inspired range names only lasted a short time before the Dynatechs arrived. Moonshine, White Lightning - surprised there wasn't a 'Special Brew'!

Right, it's been cleaned up and had a new seat, grips and tyres (I knew they would come in handy) added, toestraps in the washing machine LOL. Still no sun, so the pics are still crap, but it really has only got a couple of marks on it, otherwise the frame and components are 9.5/10 (there isn't even any cable rub). It looks really ACE and I can't wait to actually get out and ride it (still got to adjust the gears) :D .Best £63 I have spent.

Cheers...Nick

...what an absolute bargain! I remember seeing this in a bike shop in (Beastly) Eastleigh. IIRC they also did a bike around the same price that ran a full Suntour XC Pro gruppo (with the Xpress shifters) - any idea what that one was called?
