A mate of mine had a muddy fox of the same era, in pale blue, but I can't remember exactly which model it was... :oops:

cheers guys. was the first time i saw a bike and thought wow! i was only 10/11 at the beginning of the 90's so a lot of the brands that are so revered on here passed my radar. my soul source of inspiration was a small raliegh dealer in brentwood, essex. they had one of these with a acid smiley disc on the rear wheel :lol: love at first sight. my mum and dad bought me a mustang instead :(

Very nice. My first proper mountain bike was a 1988 Muddy Fox Courier. It was white and purple and I bought it from Freewheel Cycles in Nottingham with my first decent wages. That's the bike that started it all for me. Been hooked ever since.

Yeah it won't be catalog by any means but want it roughly correct age wise.
