back in the day Ed i was the full on racing wippet!!
i must admit i like your suggestion of "ham fisting" the build!!
which with the compatibility issues might be the way forward!!
oh and as i'm about to post frame pictures feel free to move this over to readers rides!
anyway here's the pictures, i haven't so much as touched it with a cloth to clean it yet but the paint is pretty tired when up close, also the stickers are a bit of a mess aswel as some pretty bad stone chips in places.
the frame number is 7793 which suggests 1993 as the build year which sounds right, the paint design is the same as my original gan team paint even down to my choices or chrome right hand chainstay and drop outs and fork tips, you had to pay extra for that at the time. going from memory this frame and fork would have retailed for around £650-700 when new and i got it for £65 posted!!!!!
anyway here's some pictures
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
