I had the steel frame lower end version of that bike for some time.
A simple and effective FS design from that era.
Achilles heel was not the front sus or worn out rear linkage bushes similiar to the bikes from that time but the false design of rear suspension unit fixture.
Rear sus unit pivots at a single joint so all angular forces of the rear linkage put pressure on the sus unit shaft which is not designed that way.
The end result is a leaking/blown sus unit and a spongy rear end.
However I still feel nostalgic and regret selling it when ıne pops up on the forum.
So enjoy your ride
