does it get good clearance being and ex-road ?

the black outline and pearson lettering don't appeal to me, but the the frame in itself is very nice. old cyclocross is rare. i was lucky enough to find a really nice one (from the 70es) here and i'm not letting it go :-)

Not checked clearances yet, but I'm hoping to find a 28 or 30mm CX tyre that'll run OK!
I'm not wild about lug lining either on such a smooth and relatively modern build - don't mind the colour or the decals though.. slightly reminiscent of my old lo-pro

I'm not planning to change the paint finish though, just clean it up and build it as is.
I don't know much about Colin Cape either, his bikes were sold through Swindon Cycles here in the UK, not sure if Colin was a framebuilder or a businessman (or indeed both!)
