After a year of searching for a minty one to replace my battered 1993 sil/turq fade Clockwork I have found one!

This came from ebay and I'm amazed by the condition. The seller said it had been raced (briefly) bitd and had marks to show....it has the odd 1mm chip but is mint in my opinion! There are a couple of nics to the decals but we all know a man who can resolve this!

It came with a mint XT sharkfin, Rich Tea headset & a UN91 BB.
This is gonna get plenty of M900 treatment as it deserves plus other shiny bits from my old clockwork frame (that I'm glad to say has found a new home on here :-))

Will post up pics in a few days when my new wheels are all put together.

Beauty!!! 1994?
Get a proper seat bolt though! Needs the internal barrel type, with Allen heads at both sides, it will have a slot in one side to hold it.
It's common for folks to fit a QR or external bolt, then apply too much torque and twist the lugs inwards permanently. Which is a big error and will damage the frame for good.

That was money well spent! Just viewing the decals - I didn't know Clockworks were series 7 tubing, I thought the 93 ones were Tange Infinity?

One thing I did't expect was the seat tube on the 94 is 31.8 not 28.6 like the 93....hence new front mech needed :x
