Finally got round to taking some photos of my only MTB bought from new in the early 90's and virtually all still original. It's all I ever needed and I still love riding it...

F1 was made by Formula 1 working out of a workshop in Woking late 80's and I ordered these specially when I bought the frame. I think they made complete bikes too at the time

Cool, thanks. They did make full bikes too, a few but not many are on here.

If you need a decal set, let me know as I have a spare repro set.

Decal set - I could be interested. Mine were white with navy and dark red edging. Have you ever seen any like those?

The spare set I have are white, not sure on the edges though as I didn't ever open the packet, will check.

I did get a set of original decals (yellow), but had a black custom set made in the end (see my build thread in my sig).

Funny, I just read a review of this bike in the April 1993 MBA
