Steve, enjoy.
Glad it's gone to a good home. Looking forward to seeing it finished.
Missing it already!

Not sure if this works as a link but it appears that this frame does have 'History'

Massive thanks to Fluffy Chicken for the link

Haha I guess but I couldnt say no after two years of looking and getting out bid
I picked up the American one last night and keep stopping to look at it and stroke it as I walk past :roll:
This one rides beautifully ,I rode it on Tuesday night with our gang ,did about 15 miles off road and it was
very comfortable and confident.I have just got back in from a mixed 25 mile ride which was also a blast.
