Bit pricey, needs a lot of work by the looks of it.

Hi there, it's been for sale for a while, I was interested, but it measured too big for me, so I didn't go and see it based on that and it was 4 hours away.
I spoke to the owner who was helpful and knowledgeable about the bikes history, got the frame number and tried to research it via the Parkpre fella's website contact info, also pm'd the same guy on here, but never heard any more. Anyway, hope this helps.

Mick

Hi, not been here for quite a while :oops: No excuses just too many other distractions, ill health, family etc.

The frame on STW appears to be a later Taiwanese built frame, the down tube is fatter and the welds are not up to Litespeed standards. The easiest way to check is if there are weld vent holes and also holes in the stay bridges it is not a Litespeed frame. Both of the Taiwanese frames I had cracked around the BB shell, others have experienced the same issue.

Price wise it is far too expensive for what it is, £400 tops - probably less.
