I haven't yet decided on which way to roll with this one - I thought of throwing about £250 at it inc. price of frame (which wasn't expensive) and that would be to buy everything from market - the cupboards are bare for this build, all my spares are 80's onwards.
original plan was to build a geared bike and I'd prefer that route to get my lad onto the road instead of skate parks
if he takes to it i'll get him a proper roadie when he's grown a bit more (too big for a junior bike, too small for an adult frame). however, he fancies a single speed - quell surprise - so that could be the way this one goes? one thing it wont have is dayglow wheels and all that lark - he isn't too happy with this!!
frame not having any number or ID certainly suggests mass market as does the weight (3kg) but it's no great outlay cashwise so i'm happy to salvage it from sitting in a stockroom and finding a use for it.
dawes, carlton - i'll see if there's any markings or numbers when the postman turns up, my guessing is zilch, just a shiny frame.
