tidying out the shed and confined to the house today
so i thought i'd photo all my bikes
enjoy or berate as needed
1988 m800 dale , needs the decals changed and the colours wrong
Image
1992 m300 dale ,with bullmoose bars really nice bike
Image
se1000 dale better than the press said dont seem to be many about either
Image
1996 generic GT with USE forks if you want a no-nonsence bike
get one of these brilliant and bulletproof
Image
1992 GT pantera another bombproof GT great thing
Image
a 1992 rts 3 has been raped of bits for other bikes hence the
seat and post and wheels
Image
scrapbox build rts from 92 , a us built frame so a zaskar rts
fitted with non sympathetic bits ,great thing for demoralising
giant x2 riders and other trail park riders
Image
93 trek full susser built for about £100 ,rides more like a modern bike than it should
Image
93 astars al mega xt , hmm its okay,flat tyre
Image
generalized stumpy best of the breed imo ,but not as good as a cro-mega
Image
95 super vee dale bought new by me , up-graded , good fun bike
Image
scrap box 91 cro-mega brilliant singletrack bike forget your stumpies
buy one of these
Image
92 carrera quatro comp , apparently a saracen built frame
really nice ride too ,again better than a stumpy
Image
scrap box GT single speed 20lb and one of the nicest bikes i own
a point reinforced by anyone who rides it
Image
91 scott pro-evo tange prestige tubed elevated that has been a real
suprise since building ,just feels so good to ride ,half painted by marinman too love it
Image
tonytintin's old inverse 4 , still getting to grips with it but liking it so far ,everyone should have a trimble
Image
89 ms racing comp xt the predecessor to alpinestars ,hence my interest , a really nice slack (ish) angled bike good for my bad back
japanese built ?
Image
90 astars cro-mega dx ,a generation on from the MS build quality
is not as good the welds i could do better but a nice direct bike to
thrash round the hills , i have another 5 of these frames
Image
christine a 92 BOTE dale this bike tried to kill the great enid puceflange 3 times on their first date . so he sold me the frame and forks , been fine ever since another favorite bike
Image
90 astars al-mega xt bought from the top bloke that is GTsteve
built up from the spares box , it rides really sweet , the more
i write this the more i feel justified in not culling , another fave ride
Image
a 90 marin eldridge , bought to strip to build a cro-mega lx , but after riding it i couldn't split it , not seen another one in the light gray zolatone colour
Image
rc200 f3 pace green and purple , built from stuff bought thru retrobike £650 the total bill .it dosent need to cost a fortune
Image
another of GTsteves cast offs a 91 almega dx , a stunning looking bike , sums up retrobiking for me 91, rave on
Image
yet another of steves bikes a near stock cro-mega dx , i do have the changed out bits stored to put it back to cat spec , brilliant bikes
to ride , try one
Image
another scott elevated , built like a brick shit house and weighs
about the same , climbs like a nitro spider tho
a scarce bike it seems
Image

Image

let that be a warning to the newbies ,stay out of the sale section :lol: :evil:
