he'd been smarter to remove that burnt paint and tidy'd up with primer. alot of heat went into that tube. not ideal.

It's probably just superficial, but I wouldn't be able to trust it.

I would have though there'd be plenty of non-destructive (from the frames perspective) of removing a seized post.

About the same amount, or at least in good condition it would be.

I would say about £750 though i have seen sellers asking £1000+ depends as usual on how much someone wants it. If it was refurbished well and the forks too then should fetch that pretty easy.

Shame cold wasn't used to save the paint, but one less black and white DB cant be a bad thing :lol:

Would that amount of heat contribute to making the tube brittle?
