Old Ned on here has got one........ :) he runs it with the cranked chainset IIRC. Came out in 1977 if memory serves.

I couldn't have one because my big feet would have knocked against the rear mech LOL

nicely built frame which was very twitchy & built for straight line speed only which at the time most TT courses were out & back with either a dead turn or RAB.

It was supposed to be a road frame, but MKM had a bit of a fetish for SWB.
