Owned by the customer since new, he’s my neighbour, this bike has had very little use in the last 22 years. In fact, for the last 5 years or so, it’s been in his garage on a turbo. Which is a shame as this bike needs using. It’s a real ‘time warp’ machine.
For 25 years old this bike is in stunning condition with only a couple of minor marks to the paint. As stated the tyres are brand new. The front (18mm!) crumbled almost to dust when I removed it, the rear was a turbo specific one. Fully serviced it only needed two gear cables and the Aztec pads are an upgrade over the older style basic blocks. Otherwise it is in original condition.
Ready to ride. £449 OVNO.
