Not my cup of tea, prefer the amberwalls sorry.


I know what you mean! Wasn't sure either! Will change it tonight! Have some NOS Wheeler Banzai's. Let's try those!

I liked it best in the state you bought it.
Think it needs a chuncky saddle like an Avocet or Turbo, amber walls, love the canti's it had first.
The change of the brake levers and shifters looks good though as the old ones were not period correct.


Will clean the old canti's and change the tires for you! :wink: I agree about the saddle! Will change it for a black Turbo and keep my eyes open for an Avocet!

For all the critics on here!! :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol:
I put NOS Wheeler Banzai XL tires on it and a Turbo saddle from my first MTB: the 1990 Stumpjumper!
Will clean the AT50 canti's to see how they look!

It's much better now IMHO! :wink:

Finally cleaned some original parts. Here's a list with the production years!

Front mech: FD-A11 ?
rear mech: RD-L523 1986-1988
crank: FC-B124 1986-1988
pedals: PD-A200 ?
shifter/lever: ST-M320 Exage LT 1993 (not original)
brakes: BR-AT50 1986-1993
hubs: HB-M730 and FH-M732 1989-1993

Narrows the year of build! Think it's from 1989, because of the rear hub!
