[Now US$250 w/shipping help. See below.]

My beloved 17", now wall art with a rust-perforated top tube... :(
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 0#p2687426

I've been searching for a couple years for a replacement, and a few months ago found a 19" bare frame that I swapped everything over to, righting my world again. But I recently stumbled upon a clean and completely OEM 15", which I also purchased of course. :facepalm:

As soon as it arrives, I plan to move the XC Pro over to my 19" and really get back to its roots, which leaves the frameset available. Trust me...if it fits, you want it. The Panasonic-built lugged bikes are silver-brazed Prestige with a Prestige unicrown and awfully close to the Waterfords in terms of craftsmanshipo (but without the custom paint). This '92 wears a crazy purple/blue iradescent "blue velvet gas" color that is stunning in the right light.

I've attached a pic from the (known & trusted) seller and will have my own shortly (it should be here in a few days). It is clean both inside and out...no dents, no rust, surprisingly good paint for a 25-year-old. But small.

Here's Waterford's PDG lineup...

Asking US$300 (~£230), plus shipping. Been a long time since I shipped overseas, so I won't hazard a guess, but I will charge actual cost only (and provide a copy of the receipt if you like). I also have some random, period(ish) parts...have to investigate the box, but I know there's a set of HS-11 Maguras, Pederson SE brakes, maybe some 8s XT drivetrain bits, probably more. Let's talk.

Update...

Here & stripped. Very pretty! Look at the condition of the components (http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=368666) to see how much abuse this one saw! Couldn't be cleaner internally, headset is a bit notchy and dry, paint pretty good...driveside chainstay heavily nicked, otherwise very respectable for 25 years! 15" ST (CTT), 20.5" TT (CTC).

So here's the actual item...

Investment-cast lugs with integral cable stops and guides, custom-flared Prestige tubing, nicely finished Prestige unicrown w/cast Tange dropouts. Gorgeous! Clean internally...check out the BB! Worst paint chips are underneath chainstays, as pictured.

Frame/fork/headset = 2.8kg.

Price cut to $250, and I'll cover up to $50 of shipping...free if you're in North America. Seriously nice ride folks...
