Recently purchased this from a local guy,Very reasonable price (pennies!!)
In quite a sorry state
Hours of enjoyable labour in the shed,total strip down and thorough clean
this is what it looks like now
really nice tight clearances.very fast ride
I just love it
Fitted a compact chainset,8-speed indexed gears
I think the colour is great

Hi bowser
Yes 4130 cromo
This is how i bought it,but a lot of work carried out to get it looking like this
The brake calipers are white,the RX100 model,i think they compliment the bike well.

hi cipo
the calipers resemble shimano "sante". nice touch maybe to make them look more expensive?
these bikes where very underrated i think .like the fork transfers
whats it weigh approx? looks around 24" frame?
that back end looks tight proper race geometry.
