Don't ask me why but the name "Mitchell" strikes me as particularly Aussie. Please tell me that Mr. Mitchell's first name was "Bruce"

Very nice. Is it handbuilt? Do you know anything about the builder?

Yes H T the builder is a local well known triathlete called "Sorenson" who built raecbikes under that name, this bike I,m lead to believe was named after his son "Mitchell Sorenson" whether or not is was made for HIM I dont know, I actually found this bike discarded at the city dump ! BTW it ,s made from Ishawata 022 ,is lite as a feather and a truly enjoyable ride ! I have recently replaced tyres ,bar tape and saddle , pics ASAP .

Soren was the father (brazer), Mitchell was his son (painter), hence Sorenson. Their frames were branded Sorenson, repaints of other builders' frames were branded Mitchell.

Great find. Did you repaint it? Surely the frame didn't look like that when you found it in the dump!!

Didn't you post this a while ago?
I saved that pic when I first saw it because my son thought the bar wrap looked cool and his name is Mitchell.
I'm thinking this was a long time ago?
You gotta show what you did to it since.
