I'd say they all look like dogs dinner builds, but that would be insulting to my puppy dog!

Prices seem to be rising for clockworks though given those listings?

[or rather, they're optimistic asking prices].

I have always presumed that the clockwork would remain one of those framesets you could pick up for 150 quid, knowing you had a safe frame and forks to build up with quality kit for a proper 'retro experience'.

Maybe just me, but I wouldn't pay those prices for a frame with loads of bits I'd be skipping before starting a decent build...

Agreed, they’re all expensive.
