Not sure as to the quality of the frame but could be worth a punt for someone.

Looks like it's just the Hi-Ten model...

Ah well. Guessed it was a SBDU frame but wasn't clear how to distinguish the better replica frames from the poorer ones. Lug work looks ok, pretty mediocre bits though...

Agree with Tel. The suicide extra brake levers are a fair clue!

Indeed the other big clue for me was the lack of a gear hanger on the dropout for that era I would expect there to be one on a quality frame.

Still £50 is better value than a lot of others of similar quality I've seen on the Bay lately. I remember dumping bikes like these BITD!
