Thanks guys. I sold my 1993 Scott Windriver tourer to @ottotto here on the forum so I'll probably build this one for this years' mountain tour. At least I'll be safe in the dark with this bike. ;)
A 1991 Muirwoods if I am not mistaken?
Muirwoods indeed. Seller says it's 1990.
Planning to change the cockpit on my 80s Dawes Galaxy (currently VO porteur bar / bar-end shifters) to something like this, more suitable for day rides.
Which quill adapter are you using?
Anyone know which bars could still work with bar-end shifters (diameter but also geometry, ie. not pointing out too much?)
Also looking for brake levers and 3 x 7 trigger shifters (if bar-end wouldn’t work) - anyone got some?
It was this one.
Re: your bars it would be something similar if not the same to your VO Porteurs, although give it a bash with something less swept. You never know, it might work (you could start a new trend).
Thnx! Where did you get your shifters from? Deore 3x7 shifters seem to go for silly money on ebay.
Brought this crazy looking thing earlier on today on the local Fb market place, sorry for the awful pic
Hell yes, looks awesome! It's from the era when better Puch bikes were made in the Bianchi factory in Italy in the early 90s. This one's identical to the Bianchi's Ragno series. I have one of these as well, but mine's a Bianchi Migale. Rad stuff mate, what's the plan with it?
Upcoming move means I have to sell this without ever really riding it (or replacing the cranks with something more period-correct for that matter)
1991 I think - the "Afterburner" constant diameter seat stays came out in 1991 - see complete bike pic.
1990 Muirwoods would be plain neon (or white splatter or yellow/orange or Zolatone in the UK) with slightly thinner, tapered seat stays - see frame pic.

Thanks for the info, @Egghead!
I was very lucky and got my bike complete. I might have something in a box somewhere if you want me to look? Might be 3x8 but worth a punt - drop me a PM this evening.
Crossposting some 2001 Marin 'retro' if anyone fancies it for a build/parts. Want it all gone!
Cheers dude!, oh cool that’s interesting I’ll have to read up about it!, plan wise I’m Not sure at the moment just chucked the bike in the garage last night so I’ll have proper look at it this evening and see if I can get some ideas.
i bought this bike, too small for me !
Nice One! Here’s mine :)
Does that mean you're selling it? HMU
yes but i'm in france !
i can send the bike or parties
Feel a bit rubbish posting this with the Manitou up there, but this is my '98 Rockhopper FS, made on the cheap for doing the South Downs Way:
Lovely looking bike, @Sig_Arlecchino!
Here's my (very muddy) 1986 muddy fox courier I bought last month to replace my stolen sensible modern hybrid - this is loads more fun. I've been working on it at London Bike Kitchen to learn some bike mechanic skillz. Any tips/recommended upgrades welcome!
