For some inexplicable reason my net provider thinks that webarchive is an adult only site. I therefore can't access it without jumping through hurdles. Aaaaanyway there is a link to the archived xtc brochure on the Thorn general forum page. That should help 're sizing.

Thanks in4,I've come to the conclusion that I have an early 560 long or medium XTC possibly made by LA cycles in Coventry,hopefully Dave Whittle might be along to confirm it

I'm thinking the 75 refers to a frame size. My old Nomad was an L.A. cycles build. It had a frame number 67. Interestingly, it's in India now, as part of a UK to AU tour. Check out Cycleforlove for a good Thorn story
