The Vintage Mountain Bike Thread.


Breaker of the unbreakable
I've found quite a few pictures of vintage bikes floating around, so I thought I'd make a thread dedicated to them!

I'll start :)

Here's another ol banger - so nice to ride , this one's about '85 /'86

I've still got my original mountain bike , to be restored , and a couple of mid 90's BMX a lovely Mosh and a Mongoose .........Went to buy a new Bike on the weekend and just couldn't part with the bucks ! So, the 'ol bangers it is :D

p.s I actually put some el cheapo shocks on my Giant and got to the end of my street , down to the creek , dropped in and blew em ! So anyone got some 90's Rock Shox ? ?

spanky's pre 2000 santa cruz heckler.... complete with spin carbon fibre rims

still riding the same frame on a very regular basis...... the spin rims are still getting used too... though, not as much...


p.s. frame was made in 1996, as the next years model came out with a bent top tube... Oh, and there's for lots of great bikes....

Love the above Heckler. There was one similar to that on the old Visit Mt Beauty tourists guides. Bloody beautiful!

There seems to be a bit of a mid 90s DH flavour so far...

I think I may have to go take some pictures to even things up ;)

I shall post a picture of my commuter, the mighty marin bear valley, when I get a chance...

It has "Afterburners". :confused:
