Badly listed but looks like an '88/89 all fillet brazed white spider. Could be a steal if you're local:

They are unfortunately not valued as highly as they should be.

I paid about £250 for my frame and forks, but it had just been repainted by Bob Jackson. More recently a couple of frame / forks have sold for £160 to £180, both were in good condition, but could have used a refinish.

I didn't realise the early white spiders came with a lugged Bottom bracket tbh.

Shame its so small at the bid it has now, its worth paying to get it here.
