It certainly is....

As most retro things it was woefully listed, 18" frame with a 22" top tube on a Racing bike frame ......🤔. 700c wheels with all that clearance.......🤔

Well as well as not knowing their ar$e from their elbows, they can't measure either as the frame is actually a 19" and definitely takes a 26" wheel...

A quick Google search only bought up one result, but it was a very interesting result.....

Nah nobody's watching. Very old school. Did you find any history for the brand?

I quite like that. So you can't find out anything about it?
Struggling to every search I put in brings up Scimitar sports clothing, definitely got road heritage thin stays and probably the first time ever I have seen long point lugs on an off road frame... Took her out for a spin today 20 miles covered quite a sprightly beast despite her age...
