I could do with three pairs of the forks on that Roberts E-Stay, fantastic.

Sloping top tubes, internal cables; how far ahead of the game was Dave Lloyd?

Wonderful stuff, thanks Adrian.

Brilliant Adrian!

That Stratos is amazing. The frame is LUSH.

I think I would want the whole bike not just the forks Neil :)

Am i wrong in thinking that the other Prototype in the Dave Yates Article, is the same frame as Granny grinders Production version currently for sale here in the Sale Section....? for the exceptional price of £30 ish quid....?

Just a thought, Just in cases.... 8)

Maybe not the very one (dropouts look a bit more svelte on the article bike) but the same frame design for sure - a bargain for someone!

I could see a couple of subtle mods on Grannygrinders, leading me to think it was the Production version as opposed to the Prototype..., the headtube differs slightly too.

Its a real Bargain for the Money, cheap enough to warrant a rebuild and being kept considering, IMHO

Where it not aluminium, and somewhat heinous to look at I would have a craic at the restoration to magazine test spec.
