That frame is absolutely amazing! It looks like an oil painting of a frame... applied onto a real frame!

I remember that Roberts paint job very well from my time in Surrey in the mid 80s. They were the frame to have if you had the money. It's a real work of art and looks in very good nick in the 'photo. Lucky you.

Agree with the above, that really is a beautiful paint job. The whole bike just looks right, very stylish yet purposeful.
Three thumbs up :wink:
and yes, more pics please.

Hmm does look to be photoshopped the left handle bar end overlaps the headtube or is it my eyes? is it a pre build mock up? should look good when it's finished though.

Blimey! What is it with you lot and Photoshop?

What you are seeing is the C from the Roberts "CR" logo on the headtube decal. The angle of the shot places it perfectly to line up with the handlebar end.

Thats lovely!

My 80's Roberts has a similar scheme only in pearl white and mauve. It seemed right at the time. :oops:
