Interesting. What drop outs are those? Are they from the later non-elevated stay framesets?

Indeed it is. It's a 1994 Force GS. Originally shipped into the UK by Stew-b who then sold it to Drewson who sold it to Antstark and finally me.

The rear triangle is a thing of beauty; I'll put up some more photos next week as I'm away this weekend.

It will be. 8) 8) I’m thinking of using the Paul Component groupset which was on the Pro Comp plus a sprinkling of red Ringlé. Crank suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Here are some shots of the frame which frustratingly is a small, so I don’t think I’ll ever get to ride it properly.

Slowly... I've got some rims but I'd like to get the headset sorted next as I want to put the frame and fork together.

Made some progress with the Klein and decided to get the front wheel for this laced up at the same time.

That's gorgeous. Did you source a headset yet? Would love to see the fork and frame together.

Not yet! That's still work in progress and will require quite a few photos when I get one as the frame is 1" 1/8 whereas the fork is 1" 1/4, so I'm going to need a shim and a new Ti steerer.

What I did pick up was this... Yes, it's new but it's pretty cool 8)
