Thanks, all. Sold to Jujupunk pending payment and collection.

Juju is only having the frame, so the forks are still available, I have a box for them and could post.

(ref grinding off the brake bosses; I've seen it done on other bikes and can't see why not if you're careful) :)

Actually just checked, you're 38miles from me. I'd be happy to pick up next weekend. Too much planned this week!

Do you think it would be possible to grind the brake bosses off the rear seat stays?


Yes.

Be careful. See here for example: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ght=orange

Its what I would do if the seller was living local and I got it for your bargain price. Shouldnt be too hard, just take your time, and remember its easier to file down then take too much off originally!

Post up some progress pics!
