Found it at a dump minus wheels. Put some old ones on and loved the ride, now spent around £35 on it, not too bad.

huz the cranks over the hedge and fit some lighter ones then it'll weigh around 11.5 kg

One way to keep the price down was to steal the wheels, tyres and brakes off my old bike, which is now just a frame.

Lovely old Hardrock 8) What a find! Lucky man
I will have a look in the catalogues but from memory it looks about 1992. Will have a look and get back to you.

Hi mate
Judging by the catalogues it looks like a 93 model.

Hi mate
Found it I think :roll:
The colour was what was throwing me, but i knew I had seen that colour before. I am going by the colour and the spec but it looks like it started out as a 91 Hardrock metro. Originally in the states these came with mudgaurds, rack and lights.
I will post up a pic once I get one scanned when I get back from tonight.

Great find.

Early Hardrocks and Rockhoppers were superb bikes. Yours looks like a great example.
