later on funk did make standard looking hardtails & the massive cobby welds are very original funk. The replacement dropout mech hanger is my only minor niggle...

Can we get a concensus on this...

I am hoping to bid on it, it looks fine to me.

why would anybody fake a funk? do such things happen in europe? a bigger question to me is why the seller posted such shitty pictures and useless description.
