*************************************************************

I just picked up this bike at the old owner.

I was looking for a donor bike for a s-works frame. Yesterday I saw this bike on Marktplaats at low cost. Immediately contacted the owner and today I got it.

The former owner wanted to sell this "aluminum" bike because he has bought a new bike. His old bike was never used in the forest ...

It turns out.... The bike is completely original! I cannot stop smiling :lol:

I'm going to keep this one original. Except for the bar ends. So I'm still looking for parts for the s-work.

Cheers,
Will

I love it. Something about Stumpies from this era that just looks so right.

the original saddle and tyres really set it off.

cant wait to find one in my size, what size is yours out of interest?
