I picked up another toy. No serial number. Given the components, I'm guessing '87 or '88?

Nice paint.

Not much use given the condition of the rims and tyres.

A minor amount of work to make it a rider.

Given that everything is XT (except for the hubs), think I'll replace the thumb shifters

A barely used cassette

I'm guessing this won't be a long drawn out re-build; hook up brakes, pump up tyres, fit saddle........done! :lol:
