Hello I am from Australia and I thought I would share with you all my pride and joy its my 1995 Apollo Kosciusko. :P

I purchased this bike in 1995 for somewhere around $400-500.
Over the years I have replaced derailleurs and shifters, but its an awesome bike and I've never come across one on the net the same as mine. The paint colour scheme is just beautiful .
Here are the pics of it!

Looking at the pic of the front derailleur its missing a top cover piece I think?
Anyway here I've come across one for sale

This should work with my 7speed rear cassette?

Thanks for sharing that - the only Apollo I know of is Halfords (UK stores)own brand, but I don't recognise yours. Good to see people still using and enjoying some of the less exotic bikes. The fact that yours has lasted is testament to the fact that they'll do the job. You've got a good country for mountain biking, that's for certain... :shock:

Gave it a clean up today scraped heaps of gunk out of the front and rear sprocket /chainrings. also washed off the caked on mud too!
Changed the Tioga tyres over for a set of Schwabb direction hybrid style tyres, thanks to my kind brother. very smooth easy to cruise at 42kmh :)
