The seller also states that Condor told him that this frame is the 'appears on the first of Richards Bicycle Book', however that bike has downtube cable stops for bar end shifters, and cable stops on the top tube for the brake cable. Furthermore, my copy is dated 1973, two years before this frame was allegedly built. DB Ak, NZ

That makes the Clapton provenance rather meaningless in the sense that he never had any "ownership" per se in the bike in question. But the bike nonetheless is quite significant to the history of Condor and is mighty cool in any case. Almost tempted myself....
