Special features
Provision for internal dynamo wireing from seat tube to top of downtube.
2 lamp bosses on each front fork.

The paintwork is in reasonable condition except at top of downtube where I used to wrap a quick release strap round the tube and front wheel to stop the trike escaping when I parked it! (See picture)

 The Campagnolo brake shoes have had their rear ends sawn off. (See picture)

The paint is missing from the end of the right front fork end. Trevor Jarvis of Flying Gate frames brazed on a new mudguard boss and I never got round to repainting.

Pickup Only 


Difficult to do justice to such excellent photography in the blog format.
I have reduced and lightened all of the original images.
Arranging them neatly with blog editing facilities is quite another matter.
