Is this the one that surfaces some years back, picked up by a chap in a low - mid end bike shop in Oxford, who had taken it in as a px?

Formula 1 used to reverse the fork legs in the crown to put the brakes round the back a la Pace. Don't know if it'll work with that fork brace, though, clearance to the frame looks like it might be a bit tight?

Wondered if this was the plan and can imagine taking a hard hit and the brace smashing the base of the frame.

I remember when these were released.

Shame about the nasty scratch down the side.
