I've had this frameset in my garage for years.

It was one of three built in the late 80's by a Cornish welder. This is the only surviving frame and It may be time to spend a bit of time on the old girl?

I've polished a small bit and it may come up quite nice.

I have a feeling that the first bike was built for the blokes sun to race on and he was asked to build a couple more.

No idea how much they would have cost. The other two were killed in action as far as I know. I will try and get some more info on the frame sometime this week, as the bloke that gave me the frame knows the back story.

I will get some pics up when I start the build. not sure if I'm going to stay with the Evolution front end or shim it down yet, we'll see.
