The decals say Roberts, but it looks more Yates to me, or it may be neither as the head tube logo (what there is of it) says something else.

Got some nice (and nasty) bits on it.

Rear stays are very Diablo like.
Either way, at that price it's a bargain. Decent frame from what I can see, some duff parts but looks like M900 f & r mechs, can't see the brakes and shifters.

Well, either someone got a bargain...or it will reappear with a ridiculously high start price

So it has.

Late 1990's paint job and still as cheap as chips.
