Just not going to get round to finishing this. It has some issues that need sorting before it goes back together, but once done it'll be a nice example, and it'll come with some decent NOS parts too. Problems are in bold for clarity!

16" frame, non-elevated, stuck seatpost (has been soaking in PlusGas for weeks, but I have no vice to hand to give it a go, original headset (needs a refurb), fork, stem, bar. Paint is good and whilst there are some marks a good T Cut will have it looking good.
Full DX group including HG70 cassette, cantis, shifters/brake levers, front band on mech, chainset, rear mech, Shimano BB.
DX hubs laced to Araya rims, freehub body has gone so needs replacing, non stainless spokes are rusty in places.
Original Avocet saddle included but knackered, I can sell you an awesome neon yellow Avocet racing saddle though.
Includes some VP pedals, seat QR, Schwalbe tyres.
Also comes with: NOS neon yellow foam grips, NOS neon yellow toe clips, NOS Shimano 2.0mm brake cable set, NOS pair of Continental blackwall tyres, couple of bottle cages.
Just needs a chain and a couple of cables plus mechanicing time to get it back to great nick.

Pics coming....

£100 for the lot
Located SW London, but can box up for a courier.
