Re short mudguards, if no-one wants the frame, the ones you see will be on offer.
I will check out frame serial numbers at the weekend.
Work commitments and serious plumbing "issues " with underground heating pipes at home leave no spare time.
I appreciate the interest shown in my bike question.
Thanks everyone
Paul

I found the serial No on the LH rear drop out by scraping the paint off.
It is 85062, with no letters, and the 8 is definitely 8 not B.
According to the Sheldon Brown and Kurtkaminer websites, which have a lot of serial no info,
it could be a Supercourse, Gran Prix or Grand sport.The latter is out as it doesn't have wrap over stays.
Looking at photos of the Gran Prix, the wheels should have large flange hubs, and this one doesn't.
It is most unlikely the person who owned the bike originally would have downgraded the wheels.
Any thoughts?
Paul
