well, i can, shaun - if it was my bike shop back then i'd have it hanging up on wires for all to see. the shop i used to work in had the ceiling littered with fabulous frames ranging from bob jackson's 753 stars 'n stripes, to raleigh road ace and gran sport to colnago super and a variety of daccordi frames to name but a few.
aye, those were the days . . ..
ps you lot are very suspicious! in the end he has the documentation which would have to tie up with the frame number and will have the seller's name on it, as he claims he is the original owner. he's clearly a super record nut judging by his feedback and bottom line is that he won't be getting £1800 for that bike, no matter whether he had it built for himself or not! that wouldn't matter a jot to me if i was the buyer - i'd want to know that it was an original raleigh sbdu frame and hadn't been fannied with. end of.
TvT, Oakleys & painkillers . ..
..what else could you possibly need?!!
