Now that's a rare beast. I'd heard they existed & seen a photo in a catalogue, but that's the first I think I've ever seen 'for real'.

There was one popped up on eBay several years ago, I recall as an auction, 2014. It was swiftly taken down either as someone made a quick offer or the seller realised what they'd got.
I've got some photos somewhere.

Is it desirable enough to make the two grand mark?

Maybe to a collector of British nostalgia but its no Fat or Klein....

Unfortunately it's the 1989 Limited Edition frame with some gold bits from Hatfield Cycles which has been up on ebay a few times before, and not the legendary Prestige model as pictured in MatBH5's post. There's also a rather unfortunate dent in the top tube if you look at the linked flickr album and some cables which are pretty frayed for a bike which has never been ridden.

I would rather like an 89 Limited Edition but not with all that gold cack on it.

Looking at the marks, I'd agree it is the same bike.

That other one from 2014 with the photos in front of a shed - I actually won it, pressed buy it now at something like £25 paid and made contact to arrange collection. Shortly after got an email to say it was no longer available, I offered quite a bit more in the end and still couldn’t get it! You win some you lose some!
