I bought this from CTK in February and he kindly took it to a mate's for storage. I have only just collected it, it's April.

The frame number is A50201522, which I understand means it was produced in February 1995 probably making it a 1995 model.

CTK had the frame beautifully resprayed and SS converted by Argos, so here goes my foray into the weird and seemingly pointless world of singlespeeding.

I'm not planning to mess about with fancy pants colours and anodising, but things don't always go to plan, do they? :wink:

The next pics you see will be of the complete bike (hopefully taken with some daylight), and I can't wait!

Very neat! 8)

Singlesppeds are a funny thing. I think everyone should try it once! Something about the simplicity of the bike itself and the fact that all you have to do is pedal and brake makes them great fun! Good for training too.
