|Other details: This is a bit of Downhill mountain bike history, the Proflex 855, World cup design, full suspension, GLS (Ground Linkage System), Girwin front forks with Elastomer suspension front & rear, alot of people removed these to add coil shocks for more travel, apparently these Elastomers take some time to break in, these seem pretty rigid & near no travel.|
It all apears in good condition; no cracks dents or re-welds, but the frame has lots of little & large scratches & chips, the alloy components all appear good, there are no bearings just bushes on the pivots.
An interesting, innovative frame and forks, if I do not sell as F&F I will get built up with a Deore XT/LX or Shimano XTR setup (or close) to match up with its original spec.
Sold by auction on ebay for £102.00.
