I had one of these, it was a really really nice bike to ride. Built up amazingly light and had a very nice steel feel.

That's one hell of a nice MF.

What size headset does it take?

Thanks Steve - it is 1 1/4" the frame/fork is totally different from the Courier Prestige and Prestige Seeker etc - it has the OS tube set and the stays are also prestige. Also it doesn't have the re-enforced seat tube collar and nice embossed MF footprint that the others do :( - the seat tube is externally butted. The forks have cast dropouts which are also different.

Interesting that so many 1-1/4" headsets from that era go brown...

Also really interesting just how much the frame differs from the other models.. 8)

Annoyingly 3 weeks after the auction ends my bank pays out £6k in PPI refunds and I would have one of my unicorns. Still when the wife orders another cull stick me on the top of the list for this one, not jealous, much :wink: .
