Manky old 80s BSA roadie ............... bought it (£10) for the gold anodised chainset/brakes/levers :oops:

Karma'd the frameset away to someone on here.........got it back a couple of years later. Its now in my cellar with an evil glint in it's eye.

Irony is that I sold the gold stuff too :lol:

Yep to the OP. The fox in my sig was bought for the old XT drive train, for the princely sum of 48 New Zealand dollars (25 quid) but ended up getting scrubbed, cleaned and rebuilt.

Can't bring myself to sell or split it now?

Seems to be quite rare and I don't want it being dismantled and scrapped.
