Looks a clean example....

However... Those forks have had some 'stick'

May make for an interesting ride

Hmmm will that front wheel actually turn under the downtube? Could be the photo but those forks look very bent?

Yes forks are defo knackered, with all due respect you should have spotted that providing the service that you are, which is very admirable and I applaud you for that.

Check under the downtube and top tube (right up near the headtube generally) to see if there are any ripples in the paint or creases in the tubes if there's not then you can get away with just a new set of forks.

Also every for sale ad needs a price please.
