I will have a look later, what are the USA ones worth in good condition and the other ones?

Thanks for your help, i don't have a clue.

Post a pic of the end of each top tube and we can tell you

For reference I understood the only purple ones were non USA made....

The USA models also tended to have piggy back shocks rather than the straight style yours seem to have....

Is the serial number under the crank? If so this one has letters before the numbers. Take it that means its not worth much?

Letters are usually the manufacturers initials
Hence Asian build , not worth as much as an American one , by about ooh , 30 quid

Not too drastic then. Just trying to find my original handle bars before taking pics, too wide for me. Seems a shame to get rid but i think its too big for me hence my lack of use. Im riding an old Palomar i upgraded last year although its not as good but i can ride it more comfortably.
