Hi All,

Newbie to posting on the site although I have admired other members old finds and builds so I thought it only right I post a couple of my own trusty pushrods...

Here is my 1990 Muddy Fox Courier Comp,
This was originally bought for my sisters birthday in 1990 I lusted after it but wasn't aloud near it! Long story short it was probably never rode more than 6 months and very very little in that time, when my dear dad passed away last year during sorting out the house I did what most fellas would do and started in the garage after rooting around over several hours at the back wrapped I'm bubble wrap and blankets I found the object of my youthful desire glowing like a beacon!!!

She is in near great condition completely original and looks like something from a time warp, tyres still look like they have done less than 5 miles! Good old dad!

My sister agreed it should be with me as she knew how jealous I was at the time result") shame it's a little small for me now"(

Please excuse my pics iphone doesn't do the colour justice!

Yes I like the old steelies too, love the feel for the surface not sure i will be doing much off roading on the MF as the old bones won't take the abuse like bitd!
Amazing when u think how we used to thrash these things on any surface and didn't think anything of it now there is a bike for every surface and people wouldn't give this a thought off road!
