    The Cromor tubeset has 0.9mm walls in the butts and is chromoly. Between the new SL (Niobium) and Cromor there wouldn't be much of a weight penalty using Cromor, and with the thicker butts the Cromor...

    That bike has been in a front end crash that bent the fork, and that means the frame probably has wrinkled top and down tubes just behind the head tube. Basically, it's worth nada except for possibly...

    Since the 1991 Saratoga used Ishiwata triple-butted chromoly tubing and was equipped with Shimano Deore LX components, I would make a point of mentioning that.

    Well, that is very interesting. The comments about the 27.4 mm seatposts in the Waterford FAQ are limited to the 1200 and 2200 (no mention of the 1100 with 531 OS tubing).

    That is correct, but the seat tube outside diameter for the OS 753 tubeset and standard diameter tubesets like Columbus SLX (used for the 1988 Paramount) were both 28.6 mm. It's the thinner wall...

    Maybe an early sixties Jaguar? The model should be on the chainguard and the serial number should tell the year.

    If it's a Jaguar, it's missing the front carrier.

    You are most welcome.

    I believe 753 seat tubes were available with either 0.4mm or 0.5mm walls on the non-butted end (the butted end at the BB shell was 0.7mm wall thickness).

    Thanks! :o

    The 27.4mm seatpost on a model 1100 is a puzzle.

    Waterford did use 27.4mm seatposts on the model 1200 until around 2000. The 1200 used 753 tubing with 0.1mm thinner wall thickness...

    5H0CHWK 92021... I think if you look closely, the second character is a number, most likely an 8. That would indicate it's a 58cm frame.

    Interesting photo. Thanks.

    I was surprised to read that the company's chains are used to position the vectored-thrust nozzles on the Harrier V/STOL Jump Jet.

    That's a beauty. I wonder if there are any provenance records to show the MC on the BB shell means it was brazed by Mario. Regardless, it's a beaut.
