This is mt car booty frame find, plenty of patina and looking fab.

This frameset has been in my possesion for a while, period correct deer head is expensive and i'm getting bit of a sick of it hanging there so .....

1989 XT groupset here we come, I know ... its not period correct but I wanted to build something so this groupset seemed the only decent candidate.

just waiting for some SiS cable and I'll take it out for a ride.

Strangely..... No serial anywhere on the frame, no repaint marks, no sign of serial removal, sorry fella, the date was based on the Reynolds decal alone.

Ah, no worries, mine has a frame number but also has a Columbus frame decal. I’ll put some pics up when I get chance.

Loving tjis bike. The proportions of the triangles and tyre to tube gaps look spot on to me.
