Fiver at a local recycling centre [ yeah.. the dump :) ]

Complete with a few purple bits and some original features including the tyres by the look of them.
Nice LX chainset, not brilliant but working levers. I suspect the wheels, front mech and pedals are original.
Can anyone identify its age?

It is now working, set up the brakes, repaired a shifter, straightened a wheel and inflated the tyres...

Might race it this year, I have a Magura bike which is great except I always clip my heels on the chainstays so the Specialized might become my main bike.

My brother is pretty jealous as he had one of these until it snapped :( I might eventually trade it with him and get my old C16 back that is hanging up in his shed.

Our one, they react as if you had suggested a threesome with them and their mum if you see something you want.

Even after being bombarded with all of LGF's finds I'm genuinely shocked at that Stumpjumper. Good job you were there to save it.
