Orange c16r MTB - early 1990s rebuild

Posted on
  • Selling due to lack of use.
    Black Orange c16r from 1994/5.
    One previous owner.
    Size is about 17" but I can measure if you need more info.
    Original Shimano gears and Orange components (bars, stem, post).
    Non-original wheelset with Schwalbe City Jet 1.95 tyres (new).
    Running like a new bike.
    Rear rack included.
    Asking for £175 ono collected from Southampton.

    Details
    I purchased this from the original owner a few years back. In early 2020 this became a lockdown project. My plan was to do a part rebuild as a town bike and get it running perfectly. I swapped the wheels over to newer ones as the originals were heavily worn and unsafe. The gears and brakes were refurbished by a local shop (ran out of time); new cables, chain and cassette. New city jet tyres. Now running incredibly well (gears and brakes) but just not using it (probably 20miles since the rebuild) hence selling.
