here are some pic's of my current project, a lovely 1994 Explosif.
Not sure how she's going to turn out but after fixing the previously funked spins I thought I'd use then!
:D

I got them a while ago but the rear hub was knackered so had to rebuild it with bits from various other hubs.
Haven't ridden them at all yet!
If I don't like them I'll either take the Whites off my other explosif or some of the others in the shed!

Very nice!
It's the one with the ribbed downtube isn't it?
My friend had one at school.
His had 'race-light' on the top tube rather than 'mountain-light' which all other Explosif's seem to have.

Yes, it has the ribbed tubing.
It's the same as my '92 one but it has a different tubing sticker.

I didn't know there were any Race Light 94 Explosifs, but it should have come with a P2 fork. The Mountain Shock model was sold with a Marzocchi XC51

It was an Ex-Team bike or something apparently. He bought it second hand, it came with Rock Shox forks and XT groupset.
He paid almost the new price for it second hand!
