Was the Mustang as bad as my sister's Lizard, which appeared to be made from heavily reinforced and butted railway tracks? I was surprised when it was stolen. Surprised the thief was fit enough to ride it away.
Dunno. It was what was stickered as Raleigh's ATT23 tubing - which was as far as I know, damned heavy, plain gauge, hi-ten steel.
Dropouts looked truly agricultural.
They came with steel, chromed rims, and probably the heaviest kit imaginable. With a lot of parts changed, it was still a heavy, dull, dead frame, with slack angles, that was still heavy and cumbersome. Yet all the same, they were robust, the kit did work, and they didn't tend to break. That's not a convincing endorsement, it's just context, given the sorts of bikes at the bottom of the range, now - like supermarket specials.
