Thanks, It looks like a fair bit of effort has gone into the fork, not even sure I'd fit a bigger tyre in. But a few things that differ from the Malvern's of this age, my seat stays are not flat where they connect to the seat tube lug and it also is the original paint and I don't believe Malvern Star went this style on roadies and no sign it ever had decals.

Mid to late eighties Centurion Cavaletto, tange infinity frame in a large / 60cm.

A few years of commuting (and not far either, less than 10km each way). The rider (not me) a bit bigger than average but not a total ham beast.

This is the second of these taiwanese frames he has broken. My advice is to treat them a little carefully, they don't seem quite as tough as as other Tange frame sets.

but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.
