hey guys, i'm new to the board and would like some help indentifying this frame. i believe its a Mk1 but i've did some research and found out that only the girls bikes came with the white seats, just curious why this one was on this frame...

any info provided would be greatly appreciated...

also this frame was rescued from a garbage dumpster...

Mike

Yep, its a mk1 alright, that seems a bit bent in the middle.
Girlies were the only one's with white seats, but it's not
Beyond the realms if possibility that it was swapped out
at some point during it's lifetime.

Looks like a U.S spec sissy bar on there and the rear quarter (chain stays), look slightly bent upwards.

A sortable frame in not too bad shape judging from the photo, although more would help determine just what, if any, serious damage there may be.
