    I'm not sure what this is. The seat stays are not the same as early TC's and it has a chrome fork. If it is a TC, it's a later one.

    This is the first time I've seen this thread... what an elegant solution to fitting a NR rear to a Simplex dropout. You say you are no machinist rootboy but I disagree; that is fine work.
