So I've started to strip the frame .. it's worse than I originally thought... found filler on the underside down tube and chain stay :-( purely cosmetic but disappointing none the less. ... and those pesky rust worms have had a Beano. Had it in the "studio" at work to take a few close up snaps. ..
still need what year if anyone can confirm :)
