Lots of arguing and handbagging (mostly cuased by my hot headednessness) over here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... en&start=0
So I thought I'd start a fresh thread and see if anybody has some further ideas.
There are some notable differences to 501 frames, the rear canti bridge is higher quality as are the braze-ons. Comparing to my mate's very early Saracen shows only a superficial similarity as everything on mine is of a neater finish.
Anyway, its looking more like something from the Overbury's range - that would be nice as I've been after one for a while...
