Found this old nail on eBay.

Being sold for spares or repair.

This is how it looked on ebay. Oops. Can't attach photos.

Err. Was gonna ask how original you think it is. #0591 from April 1991. Deore DX throughout. No cracks or dents. A few scratches. Original decals. Nasty girvin flex-stem. True temper seatpost.

Looks better better now. Trust me on this. All ive do e is clean it. Properly.

Photos are too big even though they're tiny screenshots of an ebay advert on a phone.

You need to resize the pictures, plenty of free resizers or upload from a hosting site :)

Minima app works very simply for re-sizing.

£50! I would've bought 2 at that price.

Did you verify the year by looking at the serial number?

0591... would be May of 1991 not April haha

assuming you linked to the last pictures and got out the polishing cloth and some new decals for the previous pics? But the original ,looks like 1991 TT decal.

The full serial number is 04910591.

Gave it a quick once over with some Autoglym metal polish. Don't want to start wet sanding all the scratches out. Maybe one day.

Painted the pedals black. Replaced the gaffer tape grips. And swapped the saddle for the one on my wifes Bromptom. And bought some Decals or the downtubes.

Everything works as it should. I'm gonna just use it as a runabout and replace things as they wear out.
