This is my Cougar, which I think is from the late 1980s and was build by Terry Dolan. I bought it off ebay with a stuck seatpost, which I extracted with a hacksaw blade; fortunately I had an identical Campag post in the bits box. I've upgraded quite a bit of the kit since this photo was taken, including getting rid of those horrible cheap Shimano downtube levers and front mech in favour of some period correct Campag equivalents. I've also had to put a 13-28 rear freewheel on so I can get it up the hills around here!

That`s a beauty,Love the Dolan Cougars, any chance of some more photos? . How long did it take you to get the bits of seatpost out? and hopefully you didnt do any damage ?. Is it an optical illusion but is the chain a bit slack ?, is the top derailleur pivot spring ok? apologies if its my eyes deceiving me !

I'll get some more snaps when I next get it out of the shed. It is a lovely bike and much nicer to ride than my modern day Isaac carbon rocket thing.
