cleaned up a pair of F7's the bike station had. These is a P7 to go along with them and if my dating is correct its a 1995 nickle plated. Sk8 stem, prob hotrod bars and the rest is mince.
Unfortunately it appears that its been left outside since 1995 as the rust is shocking. The fork was probably the worst but i think ive about saved it. Wish i had a pic as they've come up well and where the corrosion was has mostly flaked off with clean plating underneath so it still shines up very nicely with the worst of the corrosion leaving those little telltale black staining in the metal.
The other down side is that on the main frame theres a couple of dents on the main tubes(one on the seat tube just under the clamp) and one on the down/up tube. Neither are particularly bad and the nickle has suffered less and would possibly have shined up lovely but will have to be filled and then powdercoated (Glasgow company called something Wheels' if anyone recognizes it.
Dont get these very often, shame this one has suffered so badly. Still looks like it will be getting a new lease of life.
