Reluctant sale of a top quality rare F&F with headset.

Chrome is great, a couple of chips, but considering it's 22 years old the condition is excellent. Wheel size is 700C front and back, ultra tight clearances and that lovely signature monostay / wishbone arrangement. Straight forks & the short wheelbase give a very precise ride. Frame size is 54cm c to t, with a top tube of 53cm. Unfortunately with a hip replacement on the horizon the position is just too extreme for me, but I would say that at 5'8" it's a good fit. Certainly any greater than 5'9" I would consider it on the small side.

Just looking to recoup what I paid which was £175. I think that's a bargain for something this rare?

YUMMY.

Too small for me, but very much my thing.

I have Dave's original frame register so if you let me have the frame number I can tell you a little bit about it.
