Nice bike and mostly original. The seller has got the tyres mixed up front to back and it's missing the original thumbshifters and saddle.


I haven't seen one of these on the forum and would be interested in buying if it wasn't for the ludicrously optimistic asking price.
These were £599.99 when they were new.
 

Hotwheels.

The tyres look fine to me, Tioga Farmer John’s Nephew up front and a Farmer John’s Cousin at the rear both mounted in the correct direction. What makes you think they’re wrong, dude?? Both tyres were front or rear specific although usually fitted as a matching pair.

Just going on catalogue spec and the fact that the Farmer John is a lousy front tyre.

Edit: I now see it's a FJN on the front. The FJC is still the better front tyre. I'd switch them around.

Never ridden one, though they are a good source for Hydro Stop brakes :)
