Ridden daily covering many miles from 1990 – 1993.

(loaned it to a mate in 91 who stacked it wrecking my front wheel - bought a GX-23 wheel with an XT hub off another mate - which was ridden daily for two years - so the GX-26 Rims fit with MY bike)

Rebuilt over three years (Xmas 1998 - April 2011) at a silly cost.

Never ridden since rebuild & never will be!

Garage Queen.

Huge thanks must go to Peter Page from Doctor Bike who simply without his guidance, patience and attention to detail this bike would never of reached this standard.

Check him out at www.doctorbike.co.nz he can fix anything and is a dam good bloke!

Thanks Pete.

Too nice not to ride. That needs to come out on special days.

Thanks! Votes are like hen's teeth!

Still trying to decide on 2nd pic - leaning towards either cranks, headset or front close up view.... Have you got any preferences?

Good selection of Fisher's in your shed too.
