Not sure how to start this one off as there was a lot of debate about it on the forum, but after talking to a mate I took the plunge and during the week it finally turned up. And what a beauty it is. The frame is in very good nick, no cracks or dents and it has the following components:
Mavic bottom bracket.
Xt rear mech
Xt front mech
X-lite bar ends
X-lite seat binder bolt
The wheels are not original but I've got an idea for them
For now, I'll leave it at that and you can just absorb all the pictures.
I would be interested to know this. Would there be anything significant in the frame number (first image) as its quite a low number (F2-012A), but then I'm not sure how many were actually made?!?!? If anybody has any ideas it might help with the restoration and what direction it goes in...
My initial thinking is to give it a full strip down, clean everything up and see whats what. All the cables and bolts need replacing but hopefully nothing more.
Anyway, enjoy the show...
