Thanks guys...it will be a threaded steerer conversion to keep the original forks.
Will have to discuss it with Brian Rourke when the frame turns up...would like it to remain all steel rather than drop in a set of carbons.
I bought this...http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280898553863? ... 1439.l2649
NICE! i nearly hit the buy now on that but realised the top tube was too long. ARSE!
look forward to seeing it built up.
I'm with you on the threadless option - seeing how cheap the frame was it may be worth getting them converted (but then you have to get the forks repainted too so add on another 40 odd quid...)
just had another look - the chrome will probably get damaged when the steerer is replaced so re chroming may cost a fair bit more
