Picked this up last weekend, wasn't expecting much, but it appears to be completely original bar the saddle and tyres :))

an odd beast - 24" rear wheel and 26" front, appears to climb like a beast (possibly a mountain goat) and descends like a beast (maybe a hippo). Rides more like a huge BMX than anything else.

Definitely not NOS (lots of scratches but no dings, no corrosion) but it's going to be ridden anyway, so i don't feel guilty about banging it around a bit ;)
