if you read this thread you'll know why i wanted a muddy fox.

so after googling "muddy fox" on an image search to find various models to decide what sort of Fox i wanted i clicked on an image that led me to a Gumtree advert by a guy called Chris in Bristol. after a few emails/text messages i turn up at his house at around 12.30 today
chris wheeled this little beastie out, i am a little bit paranoid that at some point in it's life it has been stolen but then bearing in mind mine was originally stolen all those years ago i figure it's like this one is coming home so to speak, chris said it was his occasional pub bike now after originally buying it to recover from an injury, so i figure that whatever i do with it will be a bit of a rebirth for it!
i handed out £45 for this!!
also on the way back from getting this bike i stopped at Argos Cycles to talk about the P7 frame, i also asked them about the colour on this bike. it's massively faded!!
but there was a patch of perfect paint where sticker has been removed so i pointed this out and said could you match that?! full on neon green!!!
mark (from Argos) then wandered out back to the frame sprayer and then dove into the paint store and pulled out a tin of "house of colour" neon green!! they'd had it in stock for a while(read years!)
anyone know what year this is? was thinking 89? 90?
the paint is the only plan at the mo, i'll probably go with dx on this but we'll see what happens
anyway here are some pics!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
