Mine from new, raced in 93 and 94 for the GA Cycles team, occasional use since then and was sat in the back of the garage in a box for about 6 years. Inspired by some rebuilds on here, but having put it all back together, admired it lots and ridden it a couple of times, I really cant find a use for it. Rather it was ridden by someone to be honest!
You might have seen it by the Sumo disco tent at Mayhem (no I didn’t take it for a lap!)
Looking for around £450 or offers.
Southampton area or often in Berkshire.
