Yes, thats correct , mine has partially chromed stays . I'm curious about the Ebay frame , as the fork should be painted . Fork crown looks right, though .

I saw it yesterday right after it was posted and made arrangements to look at it today. I am going to swap the saddle and pedals with another one of my bikes.

Wow!! That looks so good. I bet it is an awesome ride?

I have been drooling over that frame all day. It fits my body not my wallet though. The fork may or may not be original, but even if it a 531 Reynolds fork, it would still be awesome.

This is older aluminium bike, depending if it has a lot of miles on depends if the frame is still any good, personally I would NEVER buy a used AL frame bike. Al frames do fatigue faster than any other type of frame material so if it has 30,000 or more miles on it I would pass. Make sure you inspect the frame very carefully for any damage (dents, bends, or cracks, make sure the wheels are aligned with the fork and the rear stays, ride the bike with no hands to make sure it tracks straight, look at the ring gears closely to make sure the gears are original, if not I would pass. Also AL bikes of that era did ride very stiff and would make most riders fatigue from the harshness of the ride after just 40 miles or so.

I also noticed something odd in the photos, it could be just a camera angle playing tricks, but the rear chain side stay that comes from the seat (seat stay) down by the dropout where the oval part of the stay flattens to become the dropout appears to have been smashed flat or bent back into shape at one time or another, if you compare it to the other side it doesn't look the same then forget it about it! That area doesn't look like other pics of the same area I saw on the internet, something looks amiss about it, again could be just the photo.

I think if the bike was to be in mint barely used condition it might be worth $300, but that one looks to be well used and since it's aluminum I would pass.

I wonder if the bike ever really fit him. There looks to be at least 6" of drop from the saddle to the bars.
