Thanks for the additional advert matey, regardless of how it was originally intended.

What were you searching for when you came across it out of interest?

you're welcome!
I've also posted in your "honesty" thread.
I'm a Fignon fan, I collect magazines, bikes, cycling kit.
My regular searches on ebay and forums include his name, the names of teams he rode for, that sort of thing.
1989 is "my" year, the year he was second riding for Super U, but I have Castorama stuff too, including a team frame also made by Cyfac and in the original paint and decals.
I'm umming and ahhing about whether I make you an offer for the frame (the components I don't need or want), have you any idea what you'd like for the frame only?

Not really, that's the valuable bit.

The rest prob isn't worth a great deal.

There is a lot of interest on ebay for it and I've had an email requesting that I don't end it early.

You can always PM me an offer for frame and forks. Worst I can say is no.
