Crud and I have just recently finished this restoration of an old bike we've had for many years. Its not been ridden for about 10 years and had been left outside for probably 3 years and all that was left of it was frame and forks, a left crank arm and BB!

Since it was originally our dads bike we thought it would be a nice surprise for him for xmas!

The riser bar, stem and pedals may not be true original but it is a mixture of comfort (for dad) and a hark back at when downhilling first started in north wales and this was the first steps made to any bike at the time cerca 93.
