Hmmm, 5'11", 31 inside leg, pretty similar. Reckon it would work with a layback post and a longer stem?

Right then, getting demented with the tape here. I make the measurements:

BB (centre) to top of seat tube approx 18" (more like 17 3/4").
BB (centre) to top of top tube 17" dead on.
Head tube centre to centre of seat tube (along centre of top tube) 22"

Have I done these measurements along the right axis? Seems odd that the last one is 1 1/2" longer than Neill's????

I can't see a frame number anywhere, or signs that one has been removed...

Also evidence of original Decals, but have to look closely to see them. Funk is spelled out in an angular font, one I have not seen before.

lol - hope you flogged me a long enough steerer then, Andy!

Can't work out the decal at all, but what is worrying me is the lack of a frame number and the absence of the third small hole in the dropout. Does that mean anything?

Paranoid of Oxon!

Little tiny one, on a horizonal level and aft of the QR in the drop out.

Yours has one on the drive side at least!
