About to strip the Jackson for a frame respray. I fear fingers will have to be crossed. Saddle and bar extension show it has been on rollers for far too long and the ravages of perspiration have not been kind to the brazings and bottom bracket. I traded it for my Mercian when we moved to the mountain nearly three decades ago, before @djenkinsltd was born. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
