Well I bought it. It is pretty much as you thought. The rear frames have been bent and the paint stripped some time ago. Surface rust abounds on the lower parts of the frame but this does not bother me. The frame number is dv 7575 stamped on the rhs of the seat down tube. Can any one date the frame from this number? What would you have expected the original configuration to have been? I suspect it came to Oz as a frame but... I'm pleased to have it but it would not have been worth dragging accross the pacific. /dlh.
