Hey all.

I'm looking for a top quality steel road racing frame (or bike) built by an English builder between 1984 and 1989, size 56 or 57 (or so)

I'd like it to be by a 'named' builder - ie they put their own name on the downtube.

Fastback seatstays are a must and internal routing would be great!

In a perfect world it would also have a fine 80s fade paint job!

Moon on a stick? :D

Thanks for looking

Makrie (still sad he just missed bidding for one on eBay)

For the uneducated amongst us...... What are fastback seatstays when they're at home mate?

I have an 89 Harry Hall 531c race bike in the required size.......[/code]

Now here's where I hope I actually was naming them correctly! :D

I mean it as when the seat stays are brazed directly to the seattube or top lug, as in the photos below:
