It was sold to me as a 1993 or 1994 'Alan' the only identifying marks are the numbers 040 under the seatstay bridge.
Any help identifying/confirming the maker would be apreciated.
Thanks.

I think British Eagle had a alu-carbon frame, though Alan may have built it for them.

Definitely Alan

I think it's earlier than 94 though. I used to ride with a guy that had one in 93 and he'd had it for a couple of years already.

Yeah i think its an early one - the rear dropout is non replaceable and its was around 93 / 94 that they came in.
