why would you want to do that - no-one would, its pointy-less, almost as bad as trying to hunt down metric tyres for your BMW

Exactly.... Having got a 95% original Quatrefoil I’m resigned to having to switch to something like 650b once my 700d wheels expire (if I keep it that long!)

This is crying out for a retromod rebuild in my opinion, could make something really nice. I just hope that it hasn’t been left outside too long with the seat tube exposed like that :(

These are still available from this seller as well (have checked), you might need to persuade him/her to post to the UK though...

Picked it up a couple of days ago, now dropped at Upcycle Bike Shop for full strip down and work out what parts we need. Paint and frame are in excellent condition! :)
