Picked this up yesterday. Have given it a quick clean and polish. It's got some rusty bits as the photos show, but it all works OK.

It was advertised for spares/repair, due to not having a rear brake :lol:

I like that, Longun has a similar era Rockhopper that he let me have a go on at a recent ride and I loved it.

Lovely! Great find - keep it original - that said reckon it'd look great with a set of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-RARE-FIRST-MTB-CP-BRACED-BICYCLE-HANDLEBAR-NOS-/260997106442?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item3cc4a3cb0a if you can get around the odd headset locknut size 8) . Been looking for a tiny one myself for a little while and picked up a 1991/2 14.5"er yesterday :D
