Ok this is my first thread with pics due to getting flack from certain members about not sharing
so bear with me.
I bought this frame from Hilary Stone a while ago and after chatting to Swallow's Robert Wade at the Bespoked show have established that it was built 14th May 1988.
I had intended to send it to Swallow for referb as there is a small dent in the top tube and some damage to the chainstay, but after dicovering that they send frames to Argos for paint I think I will just take the 20 min trip to Argos instead of trekking to Iron Bridge.
I had originally intended to do a Campag Olympus build but after nevadasmith's Swallow Griffon viewtopic.php?f=6&t=250974
came to light and the IDing of Rod_Saetan's Swallow Merlin viewtopic.php?f=6&t=142839
I have abandoned Campy and high end Shimano in favour of a Deore/DX based dirt drop set up.
A little more info here viewtopic.php?f=9&t=251100
Like my other projects this will be a slow burn but I hope you like the frame.
