Probably another bearded hipster stripping a nice bike of it's gems in order to build another nameless 'fixie' to clutter the hall of his squalid Shoreditch ground-floor pit. I'd have screwed him.

Harsh!

The guy owned his Harry Quinn from new, and decided to let it all go for prices he was happy receive... but don't let your pre-conceptions get in the way!

Generalising a fair bit...???
The frame if you look closely was built without a number of braze ons anyway so they would be no need to hack anything off.
"Stripping a bike of it's gems" doesn't make sense at it was a frame and forks.
What's wrong with a beard / stubble?
"squalid Shoreditch ground floor pit" - i lived in Shoreditch for 10 years and most flats / houses i saw were pretty nice...

but i know nothing 8)

You might have missed them on Sunday, but if there was anything you really wanted, I'm sure they will be available again shortly (not necessarily at the same price :roll:).
