My first mountain bike!
Assembled by Townsend in Leigh Lancs. Where I lived then.
Purchased from Atherton (nr Bolton)
£300 back then and that was it I was Hooked!!
Must be late 1980s??
Never thought I'd see one of those again
Ha, I used to work for Townsend Cycles at there response mill driving there truck for them and when it was quiet i used to help out on the production line, £2.67 per hour wages, when i was on the production line my job was to put reflectors on the bikes 100 a day would guarantee me a huge £10 bonus at the end of the week.
After i was sacked from there i went to work in a cycle shop in Atherton (Cycleworld) which i reckon would of been where you bought your bike from.
Yes it was Bag Lane, near Barrs Drinks.
Thinking back they sold DB, Scott, Muddy Fox etc but this bloke who worked for Townsend talked me round to this. Weighed a fair bit but was ok. I sold it to a work mate who still has it.
