Quick history lesson :wink:
I bought this new in 1991 for £599 from JE James/Chesterfield Cycle Centre, rode if for 5 years then acquired enough cash to build a Pace F6.

I gave this to my mate in 1997 and promptly forgot about it.....fast forward to 2008 and I was visiting him, asked "Whatever happened to that white frame I gave you years ago?" and......he wandered into the shed and came out with this >>>>

Forks have been lost (who cares?), rust is only surface and a bonus Ringle seat binder I thought I'd lost 15 years ago :D :D :D

(Pictures of it in original guise in my Gallery)


It shall be reborn 8)

Yup, original spec was full DX with HS22 Magura, Wolber rims, Kalloy post, huge Tange rigid forks and a rudder like stem...

That brings back some memories. Used to have one of them with dx and marzocchi forks in a natty blue. Weighed a ton! :)
