hello all,

many thanks for the help with the kirk so far!, arrives tuesday.
Just thought i would share my retro bikes with you all.

1988 kona explosif, full deore, probably seen it on adam gents site, and may be the occasions it went on flea bay, bid up then nothing!, TWICE!!

eddy merckx corsa extra full dura ace mint! again went on e-bay, pulled for private sale, no further contact.

1993 kirk revolution not yet arrived, but looked good in the pictures.

finally 1993, i think, saracen eiger team, my daily work (iron)horse owned from new and still 95% original.

cant seem to add pictures at the moment, computet says no! i will work on it and post them asap.

And I love the kona, mint colour :lol: , the kirk is quite nice too - top of the range version with the reynolds forks and the parts must have been upgraded cos its meant to come with LX not DX.

i think you are right, having read all the horror stories i suspect that the origninal frame broke and the parts were transfered to the new frame as the front mech is still lx

Don't worry about replying, have now seen your post on 'For Sale'!

Too small, thankfully for my bank balance, but a fantastic buy for someone the right size
