Heres an odd one, very cheap for starters, if your close by it might be worth going to check it over.

Picked it up and it's a bit of a bargain for £80,the frame and the XT v brakes are worth that the rest of the parts are a bonus :)

It's got all the signs of it being an Explosif,looks very similar to my 91 and 92 Explosifs i've owned in the past,never had a 93 so that would be wishfull thinking it was one of those :) And when you flick the tubing it makes that tell tale ting Tange Prestige makes also its very light for a bike with suspension forks on it.
I'm going to strip the bike down at the weekend for a closer inspection.
