    Duncan,let me apologise for a couple of things ,we received a few offers for components ,so I have stripped parts from the frame.Sorry ,the fact that the advert went up in May,and yours is the first reply on bikeradar.
    The forks ,wheels,crankset,and headset have been sold.I will of course send you pictures of the frame and the remaining parts ,sorry if this changes your mind.
    Having said this the frame is beautiful and the parts which have gone were all well used,the frame is the highlight ,so I will let you decide and if you are still interested we can maybe negotiate on the frame alone possibly.
    best wishes
