Most of you would have seen this before but I couldn't resist it and took the plunge to get hold of another Zinn :? Thanks Joe, you're a gent.

1992 Zinn Z-Centaur. Reynolds 531 framset and 753 forks. Full Campagnolo Record/Icarus groupset, Continental Supercross Baja tyres, Rolhoff chain, etc….

Can't fault this bike, its in stunning condition. I have swapped out the grips and changed the seat of a NOS 92 standard Turbo saddle (I know, the saddle is a bit high at the moment). I'm going to try and get out on it at the weekend and see what she can do 8)

Oh, also got a nice set of Manitou 1 forks to try out too…. 8)

Enjoy

Lovely!.......nice colour!......you will, of course, have to try the fork out. I have two sets of manitou 1's floating around in my collection, and once you get your head around 5mm of travel for the extra weight they are a great fork. I can't help feel though that the original fork is so in keeping with the character of the bike that you will miss it........the crown looks great...... :D

The colour is amazing, a very vibrant red, even after 20 years :D

You're right about the forks. I will have to try them, I had a pair of Manitou Sports on my original Zinn so it will be interesting to compare them to the Manitou 1's! I'll try them and then probably swap them back after a little while.
