I know they made these in their thousands but i can't work out from the pictures which model or year my frame is. It's been resprayed white so i'm not sure where to look. I think its a 1991 cindercone but couldn't be sure.
It has 1h050 stamped on the bb shell and also F9045561, has a 1" headtube and a built in cable hanger for the rear brake which is not a u-brake. It also has rack mounts and a forward facing built in seatpost clamp.

Can any one help me identify this?

cheers, chris :?

1" head tube? Hmmm, if the rear brake cable guide is welded to the seat tube too, you have a 1990 or earlier my friend... :)

Thanks for that. I wonder if it is a cindercone after all? I can only find pictures of these with u-brakes.
Time to get my holmes hat on.

thanks again, chris

It'll probably be a 1990 then - I have a 1990 Explosif which has the welded-on cable guide but is not U-brake...

HTH!
