I have photographs of the Chas Roberts prototype rear end for this bike, as well as both Works bike MBUK scans of both the XC and full suspension bikes ridden by Deb Murrell.

If i get chance, i will dig them out and Scan them.

I think that this model really ought to be shown in full though, not just the rear end.

Its a rare thing of functional cool beauty, that really was state of the art of its time, clearly demonstrating we didnt rest on our laurels here in the UK..... 8)

And it takes my breath away, today, as much as it did BITD.
