Frame arrived from germany this morning in some of the best packaging I've ever seen - pipe lagging, bubble wrapped and extra cardboard padding.
Its in quite excellent condition with barely a mark on it apart from where the front mech clamps on.

and for the reveal:

Yes! its the long sought after metallic purple (cadbury) bontrager race in large.

This one is slightly odd in that it has top pull front mech routing but two piece stays - so its probably late 94 early 95.

All the important things - brake bosses, chain suck plate etc are in place, it looks like it was built up and then never used.

The initial plan for this is to build it up a a retromod rider - bring the judys across from the racelite, M9000 running gear and vbrakes along with some modern rubber so its usable.
