    Please, please, please sell me your early/mid 80's mountain bike.

    Must be in fairly original condition but I'm not expecting a minter.

    Go on, go on, go on, go on.

    Or I'll sit here with my bottom lip sticking out for ever.

    Mines now my tourer. I read an article ages ago about how old steel framed mtbs made good tourers... so that's what I did. It was a 1986 Avanti Barracuda, I brought it with me from NZ. I don't have the original Manitou sus forks any more, they got given away, so I couldn't rebuild it even if I wanted to!

    This was it before the conversion, but in touring mode...

    Er... we've got a mid/late 80s MTB we are about to sell. It's a Saracen in almost unused condition, a really nice riding bike. Full rigid, with XTR V brakes and Hope hubs with Mavic rims. PM me if you want some pictures.
