I was clearing out my parents garage loft and found my old Amp Research B4 in Candy red.

The original forks are there somewhere as well, but very seized up.
I also have a large seat tower somewhere.

The rear shock is a Risse Genesis if memory serves me right and it was serviced just before I stopped riding the bike, I upgraded to a Scott.
Strike Ltd.

Anyone interested at all ?

Cheers
Chris

Hi I've found the forks now, heres some more pictures.
1 x Brake boss is missing as I stopped using the forks and changed to Sids, the alloy rear canti boss snapped so replaced with one from the fork.

Forks look in reasonable condition. The fork pivots are a bit stiff to move and need some TLC.
