My parents bought me this when I was 15ish, I went everywhere on this bike and spent my pocket money on some 'upgrades'.Firstly was the Giant flex stem, then came the DCD, Tektro brake booster and some Tektro straddle wire hanger things???
I sold it about 5 years ago to a mate who wanted a bike for work, he never used it and left it in his shed. He brought it round last week and said I could have it! I was well chuffed I have so many great memories of riding this. Unfortunately the gear shifters don't work (at all!) the original seat and seatpost are missing as are the front canti's (but I replaced these with some period ones I had in my spares box.

Oh and the xlite bar, shifters and brake leavers are'nt original, the altus all in one jobbies are going to be stripped to see if I can get them working and back on it.
