Hi all,

I have just bought what I believe is a 1985 Ammaco Trail Master.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290744049974? ... 500wt_1317

I have not picked it up yet and internet searches have not come up with anything, but I believe it is a very similar bike to this 1985 Mongoose ATB

http://www.vintagemongoose.com/pdfs/mongoose_cat85.pdf

I will post pics and further info when I get it home.

In the meantime, any thoughts?

Much obliged.

Bargain, looks mint! Given the link between Ammaco and Mongoose it's likely the same frame/fork as the "ATB".

Shame it's not based on the "ATB Pro" with twin Roller-Cams 8)

Yes! Yards of the stuff.

I need to look into labour saving ways to get this thing shining like the proverbial door.

I think once it is wearing some suitable tyres and has had a strip down & clean, it will be a nice little shiny retro ride. :D
