It fits!

A quick fitting session with a set of bars and cheap wheels finds the HQ fits, very nicely too.

Will update on Sunday (Boxing Day) as having a massive session in the garage ready for the Twizzler

built up for testing - Deore LX/DX - nothing set in stone although any complaints about the stem will result in matching yellow cables

Looking good. I especially like the big fat tyres on the skinny frame.

I dont like the stem (I really dont, but I do think you should put yellw cables on. That and new tyres, seatpost and chainring bolts plus sorting the saddle angle and itll be peachy. In my humble, ocassionally misguided, opinion.
