lol, will let you have a go sometime duke, seriously though, hats off to you for recognising it as an offroad, and seeing through all that manky tat and grime and paint. does make you wonder what other gems are out there for £10.

i definitely owe you a beer duke 8) 8) 8)

now how about working out what sugino crank came on it originally and finding me one of them :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well done to all concerned! The "is it/isn't it?" thread was cool

I'm sooooo happy to find it worked out well!

She's a beauty even if in the rough, now you've cleaned her up!

found another one on ebay that ended recently, frame is bigger and in better condition, but it seems a lot of the parts have been replaced. the forks have the same eyelets also, and seem again to be original

anyone know anything about the rear block, it doesnt seem to be cassette or screw on, cant work out how it attaches or detaches :? :? :?


Good skills on getting this and for putting the effort in to restore it - its going to be a really rare beast when you've finished ad that early flexstem is 8)

I think its a cassette that you need two chain whips to remove - the outer cog is threaded on to the cassette body so you unscrew that with one chain and react the rotation with the other chain on any of the other gears.


If it's a Suntour then it'll have a threaded smallest cog which basically bolts the cassette on rather than a seperate lockring like shimano, so yes as is said above 2 chain whips are needed OR a Pamir Cassette Cracker (did I get that name right??)

Lovely bike BTW

all i need now is a powder coaters i can trust.


I've used the one mentioned in my Orange build thread a few times - picked up a GT 3D fork & flip flop stem today & am well happy - near Aston Birmingham & do pretty quick turnaround. Ask for Steve if you want to call & have a chat.

Great looking project :)
