Is that the same as Jaws 3?

I'll have a look in my pump stash.

Cheers Southcoast, just had a quick scan on e-bay, there are a few on there but I think getting one long enough to fit this 25.5" frame is going to be the biggest hurdle... :(

Cheers for looking anyway. I double checked the space between top and down tubes and my guess was spot on 58cm.
I’ve seen a 58 black & grey SKS online, so that might have to do.

This one;

Right then, I’ve bagged the pump in the previous picture. Tick 8)

Now for a bit of searching, and a look at the previous catalogue list on nkilgariff from 1982 and it appears that ESGE ‘chromoplastic’ mudguards are legitimately on the menu. :wink:

Also, I noticed a reference to an ‘Italia’ padded saddle, so after a little searching I found a Sella Italia Touring padded saddle that matched the catalogue picture going cheap, so that’s in the bag as well. 8)

The pump looks very much like the Bluemels one. :D
Are you sure that’s not ladies saddle?
