Sorry moderators.. I posted this in the wrong forum but I couldn't delete it!!

Anyways..

Hi everyone...i've recently picked up this bike from the trash.. it had no headbadges or decals.. the frame was badly rusted n i couldn't make out the serial at all..

All I know is that it's got a lugged steel construction, 27 x 1 1/4" (630) rims and and an entirely shimano drivetrain.. I believe that the frame was resprayed as it had a grey frame and a yellow fork..

Here's some pics after I repainted it for daily commuting duties (WARNING: UGLY).. pity I didn't have any pre-repaint pics..I'll upload more soon..enjoy!

Interesting paint job :shock:

Seriously can't see a single thing from those pics that might help identify it. Any unusual lug work, grease nipple, frame number, stop for five or ten speed?
