Wow! Ridden a lot and maybe by me. I had a couple like this and that looks like one of them, with some parts changed out. Want to sell it back?ScottyMTB said:This one was ridden alot.
If all tubes are ovalized it was probably made of tange concept tubing, so it is probably a catalyst. Serial number should be on the BB shell.pbarclay said:Same question: I have a Brodie from around the same era. What model is it?
....Ovalized top, down, and seat tubes (need to check). Most of the decals were worn off when I got it, but it had a custom Brodie "concept" tubing decal on the seat tube. Or something like that.
Does anyone have any suggestions re. painting the gatorblade fork? Does it need to be taken apart?
TBG distributed Kona, Brodie and even Merlin (for one year). Joe Murray et al actually raced Brodies, but they were sometimes disguised as Konas. Actually, the 1990 TBG/Kona catalogue shows Kona-jerseyed riders on Brodies. See it here.surlytman said:TBG was a distributer. The Bicycle Group.
