It cost 170. I bit more than what i expected cuz they found that the rear drops needed re-tapping for the adjuster screws. What i have though is probably the only Scapin in the world with this colour scheme.

Talking of adjuster screws for rear dropouts, does anybody know where to buy them? I forgot to ask at Mercian... :facepalm: might of got them for free!

What a great colour. That frame did well to end up in your hands.

i love the style of the lettering its just so 80/s . the little rings on the front lug are neat also . tri colour was a good group and the little green bits on them will enhance .

*small update* added professional period correct lime decals, bought a period-correct leather Concor saddle (introduced in 1989) and found some colour-matched lime jagwire brake outer cables.
