Thanks Neil. Please could you re-check, it is just that mine is labelled as being made from Reynolds 653. Number is LL 92 518

Cheers

Are you sure it is not LL92 515? Or 513 They are both made of 653. 518 is definitely made of Columbus SL.

Thanks Neil. I have tried to take a picture of the number but see what you think is the correct digit. Also I attach a picture of the frame and forks. Cheers.

Hard to say for sure but I'm going to guess that 513 is the number, in which case, it is made of 653 and was originally built for Peter Churchill.

I love that paint job, it is classic 1990's DL, wonderful.

Great, many thanks Neil. I have not ridden it for a while, but it is a lovely ride.

I like 653, I have a Rourke built from it which is my winter bike and it is a treat to ride.

You need to get the C90 built, summer's coming. :facepalm:
