Description

Never Assembled

20.5"

Suntour XC9000
Browning Electronic Accushift Transmission aka "Beast"
Made in Japan.
Produced in very small numbers and was released late in the season, this model never made it to the 1989 model catalogue and did not make it to 1990. I was a Diamond Back dealer in 1989 and had purchased a couple of these. The one that was assembled and sold at that time was truly eye-opening with the superior performance of the Browning transmission. I chose to leave this one in the box because I felt it was a significant bike and also being an inveterate hoarder, forgot that I had left it in a storage area for the last 26 years. The bike is in Chicago and can be viewed at our shop.
