Hi everyone
Need some info on what I think is a Profile frame/forks.
Acquired it over the weekend
Anyone tell me what to look for,frame numbering or any specific points on the frame
I can get some photos sorted but my laptop is broken.
I have some photos taken with my mobile,I can send a message with attachment.
Just give me your mobile number,
.
I would really appreciate your help with this.
Not sure what to do with re/finish and component build.
Or more important is it worth the effort.

Thanks in advance
Malc

Not sure which exact model but can tell you it is entry level and isn't worth a lot

If your doing it up for personal learning or as a everyday bike then just service it and enjoy it. There is no money in it if your thinking of doing it up and turning a profit

someone might want the skewers though :D

Thanks for the picture Jussa
The down tube on mine looks a little bit different though
On mine it's a one piece straight tube to the bottom,with a bridge type tube leading from it.
In the photo you have it looks off set

A nice little project to save it from the scrap heap.
Cheers
