'Unexpected win in bidding area' :D

'Handbuilt in Britain'

1987's finest Brigg built offering in custard yellow. At a guess tubing most likely early Reynolds 531 Magnum/ OS which appeared about the same time

Full set of Deore Mt60 bits with Wolber AT20 rims

Nice colour matched rack (if a bit scraped and rusty).

Just kitting it out for the Turkey Twizzler with a set of thoroughly modern Geex Mud tyres.

Condition is pretty good for 30 years old, paint is excellent. The Tioga Pssssychos were a bit crusty but usable.

A tweek and a clean was all that was needed. *I have saved all the period stuff and pink bits!

Photos taken from my cosy warm front door.

Ride is pretty promising, belting along in 4c beasterly winds with 18 gloriously unsuitable speeds available...
