I rode it to pieces from 89-92 raced in many comps did around 12k miles on it trashed it, also had a later rascle and some marins. been mtbing since the mid 80`s a i worked in ashop and coudl knock them up. this one i kept in the loft, just finished it today so not been ridden. wanted to take some pickies for for it gets scratched up. sadly i may have to sell it next month for personal reasons but will be very sad to see the end of her, shes a real beut.
