Picked up a very clean and original MSR CR-1 - many thanks Dave and Chris in Cumbria (for not riding it!) - an interesting composite framed (alu front triangle, steel lugs into steel rear stays) beauty that screams both late 80's/early 90s and 'Alpinestars' - funny that!

Looking to discover more about the apparent MSR begot Alpinestars story so feel free to add your tuppenceworth...

Mr K

PS. The ads are both from MBUK - the MSR in September 89, the AS April 1990 BTW...

that looks a damn sight better condition than my MS racing... tho mines down quite a few thousand more miles by the looks of it... :lol:

check out the distributed address on that advert... there used to be loads of them at the welsh series racing.

Yep, I love them. A common (in a positive way) race bike. I had the deal done on that subject to the size...too big for me tho.

Good Mike Kloser repro action shots in the making...

There's plenty of footage of this bike (riden by Mike Kloser) on the videos linked to at http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=53706

I remember the stems on these bikes having a neat little cable stop/cam to boost the front brake.

Amazing condition that !
