Bob Jackson Touring

I was told that this 80's Bob Jackson road frame was refurbished in the 90's with new paint and transfers and also had cantilever studs brazed on. Quite a few nicks and dings but rides like a dream. Generous room for fenders and wider tyres although somewhat pescy canti stud spacing at 55mm in the front and 70mm in the back.

More Info:
Since I got the Cannondale in touring mode I was almost going to sell this. Good thing I didn't as this is still the most soulful commuter I've ever had. What an absolute joy to ride this bell ringing and jumping kerbs with beers in the basket.
