MADB, I enjoyed a cup of coffee just staring *read: drooling* at your example and reading your restoration thread. A fine, fine job you did, good sir. How did it ride? Did you rid yourself of it in order to obtain it's larger-wheeled counterpart? :)

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/search ... john+wyatt

"I live near Edinburgh"

it must be the same guy.. he offered it for sale a month ago here on the wanted forum..

to be honest i thought it was yours when i first saw it, i recognise that ultrashine finish anywhere!!

fair play to him, nice bike, I just wish i had the 200 dollarios

I was nice to ride if a bit odd, sort of the polar opposite to a 29er. The frame is a standard type 17" frame and the wheel base i think was normal as well it just had small wheels, over sized BMX is a good way of looking at it I did get rid to find the 26" wheel version but it has taken a lot longer than I thought it would, these are getting very hard to fined and the Big-foot I had ( I think its the same bike on ebay) had hardly been used, just stored for many years.

If it is the same bike it was originally bought from the bike shop in Bingley just down the road from me, it stayed in Keighley ( 5 miles away) all it life until I posted it up to Scotland ( how could I had done that you may ask)

I hope it ends up in a good home and that I can keep track of it, fingers crossed it will be in my home again one day.

Brian
