The good news, here's an early 1980s (I am guessing 1984) Lotus Eclair frame set. Its the real deal as far as touring, with a mid fork braze on for front rack, braze ons for fenders and rear rack, etc. It originally came with Shimano Deore AX components. The DT braze ons may be odd with the Deore AX, I am not sure. I can include the AX DT shifters for a small additional charge, ONCE I FIND THEM!!!!
I treated this frame for rust, there were several blemishes. You would either need to be a world class touch up painter, or this one may be better suited for a repaint. The price reflects these paint issues.
I have a lot more pics, really easier to email them to you if you are interested, rather than load up a hosting site.
I treated the entire frame with Oxalic Acid. Picture looks better from a distance than it does up close! My close ups of treated rust areas are all too big. All have been treated, then sealed with rust converter.
$85 plus reasonable shipping.
