in the ebay pic, it actually looked like a cannondale....small bad pic.
:) so i bid £5 and won it for 99p........i never even noticed the decal on the o/s seat stay was upside down :oops:
it turned up and i opened the bubblewrap ......to find this :shock:
any ideas?
Image
21" top tube with 3 riveted cableguides on top
Image
chunky alloy cable guides under down tube
Image
fat old welds
Image
distinctive chunky brake bosses
Image
Image
but quite nice drop outs
Image
and nicely formed chain stays
Image
1 1/8 headtube, quite light, and the colour seems original. i can't find a frame no anywhere :shock: any ideas?

Got no idea what it is but it looks very cool in that colour.

Bit of a bargain :)

I'd be inclined to say that it is a generic Alu frame which lots of manufacturers then badged up and sold.

It's not a 'Dale as the welds aren't smoothed (which is a feature of Cannondale as far as I know).

However, for 99p plus postage I'd be VERY happy with it, whatever it is!

There was a genuine classic steel Zaskar at the bike jumble t'other week... :roll:

You might need a bigger size to fit that decal! :lol:

Bet it rides okay though, like cheesy says.
