You two are driving me crazy! Which is it??? :lol:
Did a bit of decal stripping this evening and popped on the grippers. Flats are on so i can have a quick blast tomorrow. Anyone with spare eggbeater cleats? What are your thoughts?

yeah baby, biscuit tyres on Ti frame looks fabulicious.

dont lose the sexy lady decals though eh? :wink:

For clarity, you have a Lucky Strike - possibly US made/US only frame

Lancaster & Mosquito almost identical

Black Widow had CNC'd/lazer cut seatstay assembly - designed to add softail effect

Your LuckyStrike has standard cut tubing seat stay assembly. Still very sexy and dare I say it looks more robust - when you see a Black Widow you'll see what I mean.

Yup! 80's! Still not been out on her yet. I've some new cables to pop on and the forks need air! But i'm without a pump at the mo. Thinking about SID's up front instead of the Fox... dunno? Do miss my Pace but life moves on and chances are a little faster on this beastie!

It was the only reason i bought her! Could have been made of chocolate and with square wheels, but spotted that decal and the money was out the bank in a flash! :lol:

Nice - think I was watching this on ebay a few days ago. I have a 2002 or 3 18" Lancaster but LS is top of range. My Lanc has insanely long top tube which I think they shortened slightly on later models. Love it though.
