melvin,

i think this may be the frame sold by first flight on ebay a few weeks back.
if it is, it's missing the frame mounted cable guides.
i think they would prove near impossible to find!
worth bearing in mind if you are thinking of bidding.
i'd check with the seller first :wink:

I think the people who built my Rafty (http://www.hagencycle.nl/) could supply me with guides pretty easily, but probably not original.

Though I like the idea of owning such a frame I actually weren't planning to buy it. Thanks for your making me (& other people!) aware though!
