yup, mainly after it for the Kestrel MXZ ad but this was a bonus

seen the differences then - cables underneath, that funny thing in the corner of the front triangle thats like a gusset, black fork dropouts & a different bullseye crank.

still looks better than any of todays bikes eh :wink:

1991 freewheel mag on the way too soon :)

JeRkY Oxenhope, West Yorkshire. Duncan MacDonald also worked from a workshop in Appleton-Le-Moors North Yorkshire prior to that so suspect first frames/bikes built there.

I bought one when i saw that advert! I had to wait about 3 months for it to turn up, but it was well worth it.

The frame number was either 242 or 247, I think it was one of the last ones produced as i read somewhere (MBUK?) that they only made around 250 - 255 RC100's. I got it from BIKE at the top of Park street in Bristol.
