[title now edited for build thread]

Hi,

Just bought this hopefully arriving in a few days, no idea what it is, can’t find any details for a “Control” model, or if the tubing is any good....




If the frame is no good, hopefully the stem, bars and seat post are light
The forks are garbage I know already...

Re:

I heard a very interesting rumour that the frames used by the Peugeot race team in the early 90s were in fact Chas Roberts frames branded up as Peugeot Team frames.
