I don't think it ever had top tube guides judging by the pictures. I think the drilled guides are for real. If its carbon then I'm interested but how come it is silver? looks like it's been taken down while he investigates.

Well I bought it after all that ! £73 plus postage from France but it hasn't arrived yet. Next thing is what exactly have I got? I think it must be a FCK9 or extremely similar, but there is virtually zero info anywhere about these apart from elev12k's post and picture of a black one with a red saddle, but still no definite details ....yours in hope Darren

Should have said the silver bit near the head tube is carbon but looks silver reflected in the flash! I asked the seller

I have a Peugeot badged one (over in the classifieds) thats also the same. Just checked it over,
it seems to have a plastic cable guide bonded in as well, looks like yours might be missing it

Good point, I don't know, it's either 25.0 ( fingers crossed) or could be 23.0, even google isn't helping with that! Do you know
