I think this'd be a bit big for you anyway mate, yes?

Looks like 19/20" or so.

If you want new graphics for it contact Gil on here - we worked together to get the ones he had exactly the same as the original ones that were still on my frame (but faded).

hi
no DR. Who portal. lol just a run of good luck on craigslist and made a few good local contacts. :P
this frame is 18" from centre bottom bracket to centre top tube. i may be contacting gil for decals. but i do have a local contact for rocky decals i will try first. don't think has complete set though. might get everything but the `experience' ones.
no idea how i'm going to build this one up at all. have to sort out a fork first. but it will be rigid. getting a bit tired of frame only projects. :roll:

That's a 19.5" frame then I reckon. Mine's a 17.5, much to the annoyance of RockiMtn. ;-)


(btw it's his next....)
