It's not a barn find, but rather a garage find. Some guy had bought it as new (here in Finland), forgotten it to the corner of his garage and put it on sale after cleaning his garage. When I got there, it was still covered in wrappings and ridden zero meters! :shock: So I guess it goes under NOS category. For him it was just some junk found in his garage so the price was good for me. :D Only thing missing was the pedals, but other than that it was in original form and even the tubes still hold air perfectly! It also had barends on it, but decided to take them off at least for the photo. I'm an old-school MTB'er, but kind of grown out of those :)

The biggest problem now is that since it has never been ridden even a single meter, I don't have the heart to turn an unridden gem into a used one, so can't enjoy it other than visually.. :(

Thanks guys! Still have to polish the shiny parts, but here are some close ups. Pretty much the only thing showing signs of ageing are the cranks with some oxidation stains. Considering the bike has been lying around in some garage for 20 years, its condition is amazing!

What a beauty.

Shame to use it, shame not to.

Nice. Looks like it’s been in a time capsule. Even the tyres are immaculate!
