dont worry, from what ive seen Lucly strikes seem to fetch a bit more, plus the seat stay assembly looks really good.
not sure it was ever available in UK but I could be wrong. I thought it may be a US only frame, whereas the Mosquito a UK frame, and the Lancaster both

Lucky Strikes were maybe US built, as they were the first frames and didn't have a disc mount and were a brushed finish, like a Merlin, welds were a lot tidier too. Mines a '93 number 472 according to the frame number and has a frame number etched on every tube. May be an early Lancaster, later ones had a cnc'd seatstay bridge.[/i]

It was the Black Widow that had the fancy CNC'd seatstay assembly.
