Additional Notes

Built up from one of 100 framesets made by VDC for the UK market via Hot Wheels, an old bike shop down of the south coast of England. The serial confirms that it was the 93rd frame off VDC's production line in September 1983. The frame's distinctive design feature is a small oval section of tubing where the top tube meets the seat tube (as seen in the third picture below). I bought the frameset new from Hot Wheels in or around 1984 and it was my rider for the following 20 years, almost continually in the same spec noted above and shown in the pics below, which I took when I pulled the bike out of storage in 2011.
