Cheers for the comments chaps :D

The frame popped up on ebay.de a couple of months ago but never made its reserve. I tried to resist but ended up contacting the seller and you know how it goes.... I've built it up as before but with M970 this time so I can run Dura Ace thumb shifters. The thumbies are in the post so I'll get some pics up when they're fitted 8)

Already got my dura ace levers and they look great - with pauls thumbies!

Run out of funds at moment, so need to sell (See sale thread!) to pay for cranks, rear mech and bars, then good to go!

Looking forward to seeing the end result on this! It looked sweet when the old frame was built up!

New thumbies fitted and the first proper ride on the new frame today :D . I stuck to the cycle paths and tarmac and took a 25 mile round trip into Belfast and around the Titanic Quarter and back. Some pics taken along the way -

Thanks for the comments chaps :D

The seat post is indeed 27.2mm. I've no close up pics of the thumbies yet but they are the same as these ones, only 9 speed - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-8-SPEED-SHI ... 061wt_1163
