    I don't know of any carbon in the 80's, but Alan made screwed-and-glued aluminum frames then.

    I owned an aluminium one but don't recall either alu or carbon models having any curves. There may have been a lateral bend in both seatstays at the brake bridge on some models, but I'm not certain.
