Looks much better in your pics. Have you found a frame number anywhere?

I like the cable stop arrangement and the wishbone, and the paint is great, nice sparkles, its not set-the-world-alight exciting, but it is pretty cool.

No serial number in the obvious places but then I've not been to the garage much.

It will be a DX/LX mix as going by the cable routing and decal finish (vinyl instead of waterslide) this is from around 1989 90 -ish.

And yes, 'delicate' is a good word to describe the stays and overall design of the frame. The tubing gives off a satisfactory 'ting'

The Nitto bars are available but they wont be cheap...
