It was rude not to buy it, just for the rarity factor.... :wink:

Alpinestars pretty much stopped selling in the UK around '94/95. You could still buy them in the states after that, and they dabbled in full-susser's too, but these are even harder to find on these shores.... :wink:

Cheers Mike,

That weight difference is immense... this thing (believe it or not) doesn't weigh too much more than my Klein Attitude... :shock: :shock:

Cheers for the help with the Bullseye's, I'll have a look in to that (a matching rear hub would be cool, too 8) )

Proper photo's as soon as I can :wink:

been looking for a rear one for a while
either an early 3pc one with 3dv flanges or a late 1pc in 3dv

seem very scarce

Cheers,

I'm loving the rarity, and I'm a bit of a sucker for the black paintwork... 8) 8) 8)

She's 17.5" c-c and 19" c-t
