Stunning example of a classic hardtail that proved a popular racers choice back in the 90's. A lot of time and £££'s has gone into this and hope the images reflect this. Very, very reluctant sale due to another ongoing project.
Collection only from LL61 (Anglesey) but happy to meet/deliver part way if it helps.
