reckon mine must have been about 1989 - was a specific article about Dave Lloyd as a frame builder.
Must have been good, saved all my paper round money to buy one!!
Have a look at mine in the link below, I think going off the frame number it was built at the end of 1990 but I purchased it in 91. I suspect it’s like your old one going of your description.
Ah, looked similar, but mine had the same rear end as the Cats Wiskas I think.
I had it custom built for my weird body shape, remember phoning up and discussing measurements, riding styles etc - mad really for a school kid!
Rode it in some NEMBA events back in the day, Saturday trials and downhill, evening pasta party then XC on the Sunday - I was crap and a bit shy at the time, but still enjoyed it LOL!
Got plenty of 'nice bike' comments - shame about the rider really
Very interested in finding that article, someone must have it stashed somewhere!
