hi just a breif history of the bike
ive just got this bike a week ago of my uncle he had it from new
he used it very little and was just sat in the garage for years
ive been looking for a old school bike for a wile as i just carnt get used to my modern spesilised
it just dosnt feel right to ride
ive always had oranges in my younger days a clockwork 2 aluminum o
1 elite but they sadly got stolen
afer the elite got stolen i used the money to get my first car and never rode again until now
now at 34 me and my 2 children can go together on rides
i got my daughter a nice little alpinestar which she loves
so when my uncle decided to sell me his bike i couldnt turn it down
it is a mint as it looks totaly origanal ive even got the origonal forks 2
all i had to do is replace the elastomers in the forks and a new seat when i find one
so really all that was needed was good polish with car cutting compound and car polish and some autosol and it came up a treat
im really happy whith it and rides like mountain bike should
