Picked up this small kill pro from the bay and it's in nice condition :-)

Original paint is good, hydraulic brakes are sharp, wheels are true and most of the bike is original.

DX groupset just needs a polish, a few new decals maybe, grips and chain, that's about it!

Got some nice saracen wolber black ano wheels with amber megabites to finish it off, all NOS on black DX hubs.....

Very nice. I've just finished restoring mine, so great to see another one! :)

It's funny, I haven't seen one here in the last few years and then two come along.

Good luck with the restoration, if you need any help let me know.

It's a cracking bike.

Yeah - really nice find - looks like it'll clean up really well and the wolber/ritchey hoops will be very 8)

That is REALLY nice. Classic lines, just looks right (apart from saddle angle, tut tut. ;-) )

Thanks! Got a few more bits to put on including a NOS Ritchey Forcelite stem to match the bars and a San Marco Ti saddle which will be set in perfect alignment ;)
