Enjoyed the sellers description "The paint is a bit chipped, scuffed you'd expect from use. However there are no dents, dings or.." . Half the paint is missing.

in the words of John Hurt... "why have one, when you can have two?"

All pointing towards it being a pre 84. rear drop outs are different to mine as they have the bolt running through where mine does not. and can't see if the stay tops are engraved with Saracen or not. might even be an Evans? we shall see. Certainly not Nineties. I'm thinking of going bright orange like the General Lee, running eight speed and HS22's just to annoy the purists...
