Is Paganini a good make of frame?

Just saw a frame on ebay at £20.99 which did not sell. Looked rough but fixable.

Best to keep my hands in my pockets!

I bought a Paganini back in 1993/4 with an 8spd Ultegra groupset and it was my first proper racing bike. It weighed the same as a Challenger 2 tank but it was a good bike to ride, strong and sturdy! Always had the confidence taking the corners on it!

When I got a much lighter bike I realised how much easier it was getting up the local hills! Would be a good winter trainer, heavy making you use that extra effort and come summer you will appeciate that lighter summer bike and feel fitter riding it!

Still got mine but in need sadly of a frame restorer
