Looks like the cable guides are brazed on, from what I can see. Not sure what years this applies to?

Its '94 plus - the front mech routing changed to work with top pull mechs around then.

This one won't have the little roller under the mech.

It doesn't have the horizontal dropouts of the earlier frames either. It looks like a Medium at a glance...

I'm about 10 minutes down the road and can probably collect, if anybody fancies a punt :)

Re:

Ah … you're right re the lack of horizontal dropouts. I saw them sticking out rearwards and thought they were the original Cannery plate dropouts, but looking really closely you are right, they are not the early pattern....
