    Help Me Identify Classic DH Dually

    Hi,

    I recently moved house and have found this bike in our new back yard buried in undergrowth and all sorts.

    Looks to be something late 90s to me but I canít find another Avanti the same online. Iíve trawled through Google images and a few different threads with no luck.
    Only real defining features are a worn out Avanti sticker, a hardcore one and a pro series one and on the gusset for the seat post it has Kinesis engraved.
    I figured its an Avanti Hardcore but I canít find that model referenced anywhere.
    All the bolt ons are top shelf stuff from t but the bikes quite sad. Wondering if its worth fixing up or just on sell.


    Thanks for looking.

    Cheers,
    Patrick.

    I typed "avanti hardcore" into google, pressed images and found out that there is an adult video performer called Michelle Avanti that does hardcore pornography. Consider yourself warned, or thank me later - depending on what you're into.

    Yep, Avanti Hardcore DH bike from 1997. Avanti are from New Zealand and those bikes were used by a lot of privateer racers especially in NZ and some in Australia. Not a bad bike and worth cleaning up, but not a well known and sought after DH bike like a Foes, Mountain Cycle, GT Lobo etc.

    Cool, thanks. I was hoping to find some inspiration online to get me excited. I'm thinking white frame black shocks and bits and pieces.
    I'll add it to my projects list. Got an old Honda trials bike and a ride on mower to fix up first. Once their sorted I'll strip it down and get back on here with how it comes together. Cheers.
