This 24" vibrant Magnum Opus features special lugs and detailing. This frame was made at Jackson Cycles in Harehills Lane, Leeds, after Hetchins and Jackson were officially fused. It was made for Donald Thomas, then co-owner (with Bob Jackson) of JRJ Cycles. It features Reynolds 753r tubing.

The color scheme is red with black panels and bands; chrome forks, rear triangle, headlugs, and seat lug, with gold lining.

The components consist of a full Campagnolo Record C group set, with cobalto brake callipers, Campagnolo Delta Strada XL Chromium rims, Brooks Colt saddle, Cinelli Giro D'Italia bar and Cinelli stem, Continental Duraskin tyres. The bike has been ridden less than 150 miles from new.
