    No worrys BP. That seller is not honest in his descriptions. He takes pics from very crafty angles so as to hide faults. Sold me a bent frame with a crushed seat stay and a bent chain stay. His description was "Scruffy in need of paint". Not "bent from arseholes to breakfast time". Even said I would send it back at my expense, so incurring double postage and he would not refund me,censored .

    This is just my opinion of course.

    He certainly likes to value the frames he sells very highly.

    Paul, the asking price is one thing .... he ain't sold it yet!

    As he says "a tryer"!

    FCN 8 off road because I'm too old to go racing around.

    Cheers.I bought it from a chap in Bristol about 2 years ago.It was a complete bike{updated}.Stripped it down and had it resparyed by Mercians.Chrome work is original,although it is down to the nickel plate on the rear triangle. Frame dates to 1963. I will get round th rebuilding it.Room however is an issue at the momment. :oops:
    As you can tell I like Cartlons.
