Some of you will have already seen the frame over the years but not with a fork from the same manufacturer.

I should like to thank Ant and Felix for being willing the part with these items but I did make a nuisance of myself to get them! It's took four years and ten months to persuade Ant to sell the frame to me after I missed out by just a few minutes when it last came up for sale.

It's going to take a long time to build but I thought I'd whet your appetites with this shot. There's more to come...

Interesting. What drop outs are those? Are they from the later non-elevated stay framesets?

The fork stanchions and steerer tube are 8) but the frame is aluminium. According to the brochure it's 6061 T-6; whatever that is...

It was. I've been digging around for its back story and was just as surprised as you.
