nice...How tall are you? :shock:


6' 3", mostly leg! It's a 21" frame. Seat was about an inch too high when I took those pics (as my knee told me this morning; it was straightening out a bit too much yesterday!)

Free today from the local amenity sight.

All I need now is those lottery numbers and my day will be complete!
How do I go about dating the frame, I can't seem to find a serial number?
Also where can I find the original spec list/reviews etc.
Thanks
Andy

I think it's a 1991 frame. I don't know where you can find a spec list, I'm afraid. The brochure is on here, but it's really just publicity.

It really is amazing what people will throw away isn't it, but how well spotted is that? Well done!

Recently found a Prestige on ebay with all original bits, more or less. 92-94 I think, thread on SK8 stem's bar clamp's been crossed at some point but still works and tubes a little rusty inside, scratched outside but straight.
Will get some pic's on soon hopefully and will need to source some decals. Oh, a new project! Love it! :D
