After getting some negative feedback on the 160mm syncros stem I found a nice 150mm fillet stem to make more correct and the seat I will change other than that its pretty orig and in very nice shape It is stamped 88 so it appears to have been made in 1988 explosive.

looks to be somewhat orig except for the stem that I changed after receiving some negative feedback on the syncros stem and the chair will be replaced with something more orig. The fork is stamped 88 as well as the frame

Splattering paint on a frame must be so much fun, and it looks great too!

Lovely bike, I personally really like both the Syncros stem and the brooks - whatever fits though. And that paint-job! - so makes me think of the Stone Roses seminal album - might have to go and have a listen

Along with the Klein paint jobs this is one of the most recognisable/iconic out there. Just great.

I thought the stem on my 1990 Muddy Fox Courier Comp was long but this a lot longer.

Well this is as done as its going to get before I let it go. I don't have any shifter cables or housing or chain that can be done by new owner. I found period correct seat and the stem is going to stay the same even tho not orig. here are some pics
