Here is my recent local ebay win. It's in stunning original condition with very few marks/chips of any kind. The only none original bits are the rear wheel and tyre (although the original wheel was chucked in as well). Even the bar ends were on when it left the shop.
The chap who sold me it had had it from new. He got it from Stif (Leeds) in Nov '94 and they told him it will have been one of the first ever C16's off the production line. He knew the C16 was replacing the Clockwork in 1995 and had been pestering them for the first one they got in. I've even got the original order form, receipt, and manuals.
I was not sure I'd like the colour (special order only at the time) as there's only so much purple I can handle these days after a purple overload around '93 but the pics just don't do it justice (and no, the Hot Rods are not pink
). The purple sits really well with the bright lumo orange decals and it grows on me more and more each day.
Not sure exactly what I'm going to do to it yet. I'll have to get matching wheels and an amber wall tyre to match the front but will probably just get out and ride it after that. I've got some RC35's just in but think they'll go on another project as it seems a shame to part the frame and F7's. At most I might go for a flite and thumbies but that's about it.
Pics were taken after I picked it up so I'll be giving it the once over with de-greaser and polish. Also need to adjust various bits and have a general tinker so will post some more up when it's fully cleaned up.
Hope you like it!
