I think I had a 400 or something in yellow with the flame graphics and yellow Rock Shox up front.


If it was completly yellow with red decals and had a Gunmetal Judy C LT 80 mm, it was a 1999 300.

Just had another look - some really nice touches to the build on these frames - were the 853 ones hand built in the UK? What sort of weight are they frame only?

All 853 were hand made in Raleigh Special Products at Nottingham. The A-Pro alloy frames were also fantastic. A-Pro have made frames for many "American" brands.

As to the weight, short of stripping it down..... pass.
