One of the nicest bikes in the Muddy Fox 89 line up IMHO :)

There should be a scan of the 89 broucher in the scans section :)

Great find and a bargain too!
These are great bikes. The 89 foxes are just right for some reason.
I wish I knew why.

Nice one Matt!
I have to admit to knowing very little about early MFs until recently. Then I bought an '89 Pathfinder, and I now love 'em! Lots of bargains around at the moment, snap 'em up while you can.


Cheers,
Andrew

Yep it's a nice model, I have one and a bit of these, I bought it while I couldn't find a 1990, Side by side with my 1990 frame, these look loads better made! It's sort of like a heavier Orange Clockwork. Will have to build one of mine up 19" or 21" and see if it rides as good as it looks. What size is yours 23"?
Brakes on mine are a thick plastic covered cantilever, My chainset is missing and the rear mech is broke! :? :lol:
