A while back Lawrence flagged this beauty up as it was for sale on Craigslist in the Seattle area. He went to view it, did the deal and helped ship it over for me. Frame is 18", serial number is 160 which the previous owner reckoned made it an '86. Kit consists of M730 with a double U Brake setup, Salsa bars and stem. I've added an '86 stamped Turbo and some Fisher Fattrax tyres as the originals were shot. Took it out today and it rides really great, really comfortable.
Big thanks again to Lawrence for his help. A few pics.....

Damn! Let me know if you ever feel the need to swap that for some high-end British steel!
