Very, very rare find.

cheers for that Carl.

Just found this. http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 9667b54048

The one I have was sold by a shop 2 miles down the road in Bingley (Keith Lamberts ) and its still selling bike to this day. I`m going to pop in and see if they have any memory of selling these.

This is what I have so far.

Made in Japan by ARAYA for Muddy Fox in 1985 I think, will the frame number tell me anything?

The bike consists of…….
ARAYA Cro-Mo frame (I will get some dimensions when I find the tape measure) Tange 2001 Mangaloy forks.
Suntour XC thumb shifters
Suntour AG Alpine Gear, front and rear mechs.
Dia-compe canti brakes
Suzue hub with 24” ARAYA rims, galvanised spokes, Muddy Fox tyres.
Tourney GS cranks, KKT pedals.

Thanks for that, really nice to see and now I have to find one of those bar bags and the pump. Any one got these in a box stashed away?

Cheers Brian
