I'm also downsizing my flat and bike collection.The frame is very light considering it's a full suspension mountain bike from the 90's.Serial #011963128LTSI'm not 100% but I believe this to be an early 6061 USA made model, one of the first ones to have the newer designed rocker.Collection only and cash on collection much preferred. Viewings welcome but would need to be arranged well in advance.I've tried to cover everything I could think of for the bike. Any other questions please ask.
