Can anyone identify this MTB frame?
DT bosses suggest it's fairly early. But 1"1/8 threaded HT so not super early.
The paint job is awful. It's mega thick. I might remove it but wondered what I'm working with first. Almost certainly had some repairs but hard to tell the extent under all that paint.
Clamped BB shell is strange. It takes a standard BB. Not eccentric so not sure what purpose it serves.
The forks are just something of a similar era that I found. Will probably keep the original forks on it though.
Too small for me unfortunately but might build up for my wife. Its actually my Dad's. He got it in a job lot of frames years ago (including the awful paintjob). He was told its a Roberts. Not sure about that. I seem to recall thinking it was a Dave Yates. Anyway can't seem anything like this made by either of them so possibly neither.
More pics to follow.
EDIT: Not sure what happened there. Won't upload images. Anyway they're all here if the above didn't work.
