Hi folks,
Picked this up for £70 on ebay a while back ,

Really looking for a Ritchey framed project , but kept looking at this in my watch list . There was something about it told me I had to have it . So here it is .
Was advertised as having a small dent in top tube , fair enough . Could see from photo it was only small , I could live with that . Then I noticed a crease in the seat tube where the front mech had been fitted . Too tight or wrong size ? Who knows .Took it to a local frame builder , who took a look at it and said he could repair it and the small dent with some brass I think , in case I had it re-finished in future . Asked him to blast and repaint it too . Got some transfers made up at a local shop and told him what I wanted . Picked it up Thursday and here it is !

Nice work.

I have a Scott superlite.

I think some of their stuff is underrated.
