Looks like Merida Cobra, but I like it. Simple look.

Cheers

Hi,

Very nice ...but you are searching for a Scott? Maybe have something you like. Approx 1990 ProRacing frameset. Prestige or Ishiwata tubing (ovalized near the bracket). Very nice. Looks like it is fillet brazed. Don't know whether it actually is. It is black to red. To former owner painted it immediately after he bought it new. He didn't like the fluo green. Doh!

Nice wheels......on the bin, shame you ruined the picture by putting that heap of rubbish in front of it.
What's it like through the bends?
Do you sit in it, or on it?

Ha Ha, only joking mate! Not bad for a freebie eh?
