I used to look at them in Cycle World Romsey too.
Is this the one that the guy was selling on here?
It is, I knocked him down a bit, and with the level & condition of the bits (All immaculate M900), and the frame being so good, I reckon I got if for a pretty good price.
its very cool. what does it ride like? have you taken it offroad yet?
Ta. The forks aren't holding air, so I haven't taken it off road yet... but I have taken it for a blat down the street, a road I'm familiar with, it's my 'Test route'. The ride was 'interesting' to say the least... I won't say more than that until I've ridden it properly.
The Mag 21 SLs on it look good, from 5 feet. As seems to be normal with these, oil has tracked between the metal slider and the paint, and the lacquer isn't really held on with anything. So, I plan to get them functional, then consider my options of re-finishing them. I should know if my replacement air-valve idea has worked in a day or two...
