This is a very reluctant sale but I'd rather the bike is loved and used by a new owner - its a lovely piece of British Design and engineering craftsmanship and I've never had any issues with it ( just the 'issues' with my maturity !! )
The bike will be packed very carefully in a proper cardboard bike box and will be sent insured and with tracking. ( cost from here in Northern Ireland to mainland UK may be between £45 - £75 depending on exact location )
I am totally new to this advertising bur a friend recommended 'RetroBike' as its used by proper enthusiasts who will appreciate what the bike is. ( more pictures available but unable to load at this time ) ( Not sure what this PM is but i will provide my contact details to anyone seriously interested ) - Regards - Alan
ASKING PRICE is £1150 plus cost of the delivery

Don't worry whoever buys this will love and cherish it. Technically as it's 98 should be in the post 97 section but I think we can let you off for such a wonderful original bike. Just lower the bar ends a little as it's playing with my mind! Add a set of tan walls and it would be perfect. What an amazing thing, you must have really loved X-lite (well who didn't in the 90's). Your price is very fair so hold out for it

Re: X-lite titanium pro

Really appreciate all the kindly comments- hopefully they will encourage a worthy new owner - yep agree that bar ends a bit high in photo - is there a restriction on the number of photos allowed ? - could only download 8 ... someone is very observant as yep it was bought from Armstrong Bike Dock in Lisburn. Bought it as frame / forks then bought the new X-Lite stuff etc from there to build it to the spec I wanted ( gradually saved the hard earned £ so I could get what I wanted ) - Used it 3 years in a row on the Co-operation Ireland Maracycle. Any other info just ask.
