currently red, but it needs a respray, so I was going to go for the grey, as there were no other grey ones and the one disc version I have seen (in a magazine article) was grey, maybe Ill go for the green or yellow now.


Hey Rod, im really intregued to see the front fork with the disc mount..? I have not seen the disc fork upclose, i wondered ref the disc tab, and the tubing? At only 1.5 weight for the fork, and the thinner tube of 753. I wondered if they ran with it or changed the tube for the legs.? Do you have a pic of the fork you could post?

I just wanted to also say thank you Ratcapa and his mate for all the effort in suppling the late 91/1992 model year brochure below.


No problem, I must have read it quite a few times myself before posting. :wink:

Mine is a 531 main frame, and 753 fork (disc only, obviously). It is the same shape as the normal fork, but with the specific Hope disc 'big hole' mount, looks pretty clean, Ill do a picture if I remember.
