Here's my newly aquired MB-1. All original except for; tyres (perished), skewers (had been replaced with locking cack), front derailleur (rusted to sh1t) & pedals (missing). Although it's not in 'showroom' condition, it's mechanically PERFECT. Judging by the condition of the components i'd say it'd be lucky to have seen 20km of action!
If anyone knows what model year ('91?) or size it is, please let me know! The TT measures about 560mm. I'm torn between leaving it in the condition it's currently in & just using it... and stripping it down for a full re-spray & new decals. What would you do?
