I was at the factory in 1994 and they had an F1 with a back end that was definitely DOGS BOLX - I know, because it had a small white sticker on the black tubes that said "DOGS BOLX" :)

The wishbone seatstats were bonded onto the top of the seat tube, rather than bolting in the sides, like yours. Maybe it was a one-off?

My F1 seatpost is going strong 16 years later, even though it's properly stuck in my Roberts DB prototype.

Lovely thread by the way - reminds me why I love Retrobike.

Are you thinking of this style?

As far as I can work out there were four variations of frame design, this being the newest model.

Save the seat post! :)

Mutley,

Built not too far away, DPS in Bookham. The estate opposite the train station. Gone now though.
