You were lucky indeed to get hold of the frame. I'm guessing this is why you got those rigid forks?

That is seriously nice mate....same year as my Durango (p comp). Trail stem is a bit special too. 8)

I'll fling you a set of headtube and seat tube decals when I finally get around to having them made up.

They look like this.
