Nice one! It'll make a great bike I reckon.

I bid on one of those near me a few months ago but it went really high. I have an 87 Raleigh Avanti and since then I've got my 89 Muddy Fox Seeker so I think I'm sorted now for 80s bikes! Hence not keeping the Technium (which came before the Seeker too but has been edged out).

I always think of these as rugged tourers and that's what my Avanti will be when I eventually get it built. The Seeker is the stand-in for an upcoming trip to France with the family (so short rides only).

The seeker is a bit less relaxed and is my everyday hack for now. Better than a hack (by my standards) but not particularly a target for thieves so I can lock it and leave it.

What have you got in mind for this?

I'm planning on doing a catalogue build with it,i've got most of the parts just waiting for them to be posted. After that i need to find out what rims it had coz all it says in the catalogue is black anodised. If anyone knows what rims that'd be a big help after that everything will get a good polish and i'm tempted to enter it in BOTM if it comes up nice and shiny :D

Read your pm mate and that's the rims on it :D the mad thing is i've got a spare set of these rims laced to 7speed m730 hubs aswell :lol:

I'll ask kingoffootball about the stem or if your reading this kingoffootball send me a pm if you'd like to sell it :)

I've found some nos tioga tange prestige bars i had lying around which i'll use. The remaining parts are in the post so all i need is a chain and the wheels laced up with new spokes and fit the 1.8 charge splash backs on and its good to go :D

Before this gets expensive buying stems that don't fit (just bought one which is 22.2mm and that didn't fit) i thought i'd see if any of you good people have an any idea what size stem the Montana took.

I just built this, its from 1988, i have the old stem, so i'll check the size, but i'm guessing it is 1" as the bullmoose bar is 1".
You've done a nice job of the bike.

I like the look of your peugeot,have you done a build thread on it? Saying yours is from 1988 that would be brilliant if you could have a look they might of used the same sizes,this 1980's 1" stem size has me confused :lol: there's so many!!

Just checked the old stem & it does seem an odd size, and it is thinner than a normal 1" steerer.
Pm me your address and i'll post the stem to you, if it works, cool.
