Nice, but not a"special order"frame, the frame was an off the shelf item widely advertised in the cycling press at the time.

Roadking.

Thanks, but I am aware of this, had my 1984 LU Corsa and my 1986 SBDU from new.

One handbuilt, one made to measure and handbuilt - in different counties though.

Roadking.
