Any thoughts on these?

I've just bought one via an ad on my local gumtree for £100.

Its a complete, rideable bike in unmollested condition. Very nice tangerine paintwork with a gold flake through it, only a little corrosion creeping under the paint on the underside of the downtube.

looks like all the standard components are still on it, stx/rc, lx, and sachs grip shifters.

Only area for concern is the headshok. It moves ok but the lockout doesn't work and it doesn't appear to have any damping.

It rides very nicely, although I've only ridden on the street so far but I'm very pleased with it.

cheers Simon, I posted on your thread at the time. As I said, my original plan was to change all the bits to pretty much the same spec as yours, including the maguras but I've now decided to leave the old girl intact.
