Right, are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.
Thanks for that little bit of info
There are numbers 4960 on the steerer and the same 4960 stamped on the bottom bracket.
I've contacted Chevin Cycles in Otley by phone/email/facebook and it seems they don't give a rats ass about my enquiry. Shame on them !
Just to see any close up pictures of a pavone would be most welcome especially the frame decals and the pheasant head badge.
I also found out via' Nick Tithecott at Lloyds that the same chap also made 'Delta-sportive' road bikes.
These 'Delta-sportive' bikes had ultra short wheel bases and has twin tubes so the wheel has clearence.
the bottom bracket excentric for chain tentioning purposes because of the vertical rear dropouts.
I've got other pictures of this Delta-sportive and the lug-work/rear seat stays/drop-out are the same as my Pavone so i'm pretty sure its a Pavone.
I hate RED DWARF
