I bought this frame here about 2 years ago. stripped the paint off to check the brazing, had to re-cut the steerer threads and thought as I'd not ridden it itd' be nice to actually try it, so I built it up with a selection of parts from my Muddy Fox Socerer and my fav Nitto moustache bars and TD stem & my ti B17 brooks & Carradice SQR bag.

It's currently covered in ACF50, and did sterling service bike camping/packing a couple of weekends ago. Will be off to Argos for a re-paint sometime soon ish....

It was purple when i bought it, but original looking paint in the steerer is lime green! :D

Rides beautifully!

Bars look great as does the frame, assume it is just bare currently?

Yup, bare tubes and gorgeous bare brass fillet brazing!
I presume it's Columbus tubes, need to verify it's age and check...

The roller cam is ridiculously over engineered :D

Very compact! Nice. Like one of those 'how does it work?' Books
