I still think it's an Amazon but the later Ascenders were also a dark metallic green (not the early ones that were much lighter and non-metallic).

you all seem to need some lessons in frame spotting.

1. IGNORE the colour

2. match lugs, braze-ons, frame stops

3. look for more subtle things like pencil stays, tube width and so-on

DOnt just fink 'cos it gween its gotta be a Ralleey Underpants.

I'm gutted. I was expecting pics of a mirage. My 1st MTB was a 90 Mirage as correctly stated above, Purple with 300LX. I believe the 89 Mirage was white with exage country bits.

Amazon was hi ten iirc. Which is what I think that frame is.

Either way, if thats a reframed mirage, all I recognise is the saddle QR.


Looks like a Raleigh bottle cage of the correct era. Wrong colour though.


Bottle cage on the photo above is the original Raleigh one from the purple Mirage.
