Here she blows my first retro MTB and what a beauty :lol: picked this up from my brother in law a couple of days back .... it was going down the tip so i'm a happy bunny .... the plan is to fix it up, change the bar set up....everything works fine so i'll give it a gently service a good clean up and then i'll use the bad boy for some trips to the boozer

If anyone has any info on them back in the day please let me know ... I kind of remember them but not that clearly.... a quick google search has drawn a blank

What coz they are very rare and i've stumbled upon the last original example in existance and its worth a fortune :lol:

I'm under no illusions as to where it was back in the day in terms of the market place and exactly where it is now ... but I personally think It will make a great bike for blasting to the pub and back :D
