My new (old) Woodrup...davet

.. I found this Woodrup frameset hanging in an LBS. The price was right(!), the size was right and it was too pretty not to see the sunlight again.

I built it, up using new Shimano 9-speed gear, trying to keep in the 'style' of the period.

It's made from 531, and rides very nicely. I've got carbon and Ti bikes, and the Woodrup is right up there with them as far as ride qualities go.

I met the original owner this week and he told me that he had bought the frameset new in '86, installed some brakes and a wheelset, but never got further than that. So the bike was un-ridden until I got it!

There is little info about Woodrup available. Can anyone point out more?
