Very nice. Those Foxes remind me of the first MTB guide book i bought. It now needs lots of pipe lagging over the tubes and carting to the top of Red Pike in the Lakes just like Jeremy Ashcroft did back in the day.

That must be some kind of visual artifice. :shock:
You must have had two bikes because i see one old and one new. :D
But seriously that is a really great afford! Bikes like this make me come back to this site over and over again.
Stunning.

Really nice restoration. How did you get it all so gleaming? Autosol and iron elbow?

Very impressive restoration. I really enjoyed all the before and after pics.

Can you tell me what that little metal bracket connecting the front axle to the rack eyelet is for?
