I saw this Phoenix SE in a nice vintage MTB workshop.
Hence it was a 15", I knew its probably too small and I was planning a build for my wife, I offered to trade the frame because we were working on a bike trade anyways.
here a shot how my friend built it (by far too modern for me :))
After arrival I checked the frame and the decals surprised me. Not only the swapped smaller (newer) Phoenix and old-school WTB decal compared to my 16.5 rider, the names of the builder - Steve, Charley and Mark are on the back and front of the seat tube + the extra WTB and Steve Potts decal on the down tube. I was told and belive it this is all original, could be, hence this was already a 1/8" head tube and the time when they changed the model to the newer set up. here some pics.
Besides those decals, I really like the black-blue paint. One indicator why I might be OG paint is, there is no D&D on the left chain stay.
