I'm not convinced by this.

Looks nothing like a genuine CR to me.

Others on the forum may have more knowledge of them than me though.

I don't know, fillet brazed finish, seat cluster looks about right, the ad doesn't provide any proof or explain why it isn't branded Roberts though?

Hey, me too, but small bikes look better and I rarely hit my head on doorways.

Details look reasonably consistent for a Roberts.
If you search Parilla Lynx on here (might need to experiment with double ‘r’ or ‘l’ for correct spelling) you’ll see a Roberts frame made for an accessory company, kinda promotional. It was mine, but sold a couple of years ago.
Could this be similar? Was the Evolution a shop brand?
Anyhow, the Lynx has/had a traditional Roberts frame number so that would help the current seller.

Plus, the oxygen is much denser way down here at 5' 8".
Thanks Roly - I feel much better now!
