Maybe, I'm just getting old but the newer ones just don't float my boat - the 851 is only margi...

Seat got recovered in the mid 90's. Marzocchis replaced wi...

Sold for US $2,550.00 - ouch.

Hi from Tasmania - Oz

Stumbled across these forums the other day & thought I should join - it's a very handy resource.

The next time the sun's shining I'll take a pic of the toys & post it :)
