Hi all, just joined as I've picked up a MINT condition 1994 M-Trax 1000, K2 Cromoly frame, full Alivio etc. Even still has the original tyres!!
Here's a picture as I got it, a little dusty so its being stripped for a clean and regrease very soon:
Even the protector sticker for the chain is intact!! Like the bike has never been used!
I've been looking for one of these bikes for quite a few years now but had to be in excellent or mint condition. I had one in 1994 which I built from scratch. Neighbour worked for Raleigh and got me the frame set and i built it with full XT at the time. A few months later it was stolen and I've always wanted another and the time was right now!!
Just a couple of things though, the crank arms have a bit of corrosion on them (looks like spots etc) anyway of getting this off to restore it all to original condition??? It can just be seen in the pictures above. Also, seat post size as the post is corroding and being steel has rust spots on so want to look to get it replaced with one similar etc. Oh and the saddle will be going...Its hooooge!!!
