just picked this up tonight......been after one ever since i was a boy reading the print off MBUK every day!

seemed a decent price, but it turned out sound.

basically the guy has owned it from new, he raced for pace and this was one of the bikes they let him keep when he packed it in :wink:

he has hardly used the bike, having a cellar full of road bikes and modern mtbs to keep him busy these days.

so basically it was kept as a memento, and rarely ridden, even spending 7yrs hanging on the wall of his holiday home in france.

heres a few pics......a good clean and set up tomorrow, then see what it needs, apart from the shocks being almost solid its a sound bike.

Very nice :)

Think you'll find it's an F3, the F2's had a square seat tube as the RC100's

Weird looking chain keeper system under the rear chainstay, never seen one like that before...
