Well done mate - absolute bargain. Was that the 19 or the 20?

That's stunning. Can't say much more really, and for £83 :shock:

That paint job dates it perfectly. Not many frames can wear those splatter-look finishes (early konas and GTs excepted), but that's right on for the era.

Congrats!

As the seller had a 19" and a 20" (I bought the 20") it's interesting to note that the 19" went for £201... and had 13 bids versus 8 for the 20".

Can't wait for its arrival...

Nice pick up. Those auctions didn't get nearly the attention they deserved.

Its nice when you can still land a killer deal on a great bike.

Yep, that's a known fact that TET and BG both made batches of Warriors - learnt that on the mighty MTBR forum... :-)

I interpret that this one will be an earlier model.
