Need a bit of assistance identifying this,she's a heavy old girl, but I still like the look of her. So, e stay frame,25.6(ish)seatpost,1"threaded headset,straight bladed forks,distinctive rear brake cable hanger and frame number is 90073789. It's been sprayed blue. Looks like it was white or cream originally.Any ideas?

Plan A it is then. Strip paint, take gear cable guides off,paint white(at least it will look light)Single speed its sorry ass and ride it to the pub! 99p well spent.
