Thanks for your help guys. I too can confirm 26.4 (checked the seatpost with some verniers I laid my hands on in work!). I suppose I should have done that before sending you all to your sheds / garages / man caves to check. :oops:

Off to eBay now to see what I can find....

I had one as a back up bike such a sexy paint job , nobody does cool paint anymore such a shame .

They are all Matt black or standard blocks of colour now :(

Looks great with the forks fitted , you should attemp the black lines on a set of forks.

Tin of black paint , hanging from the ceiling , a drill hole in the bottom and swing baby :)

Thanks :)

If the forks were scruffy I might have had a go but I think I had better leave them as they are :lol:

That paintjob is the definition of rad!

Did you source the parts NOS or bought second-hand?
