Subject: [CR]Re: Pre war Hill Special Frame for sale

$55- I have to clear out some space. I have no history on this frame, the person I bought it from told me it was a Hill Special (Blackpool, England). It is 22 inch centre to top, with a 22" centre to centre top tube. Track rear facing drop outs, D shaped mudguards 3 inches up the stays and forks. Round section forks, double crown, fancy lugs. The steering column takes a recessed headset and headclip. (Available separately from me). Semi fancy lugs, wrap around seat stay bridge, drilled and tubed, and chisel tops to the seat stays. It looks as if it was built with some care and attention. That is all the good news, the bad news is that it has had a modern re spray, which is not nice. It made hide what was quite a "rough" surface underneath. In this state it is fit to ride and if you fancy restoring an old British light weight it is a cheep starting point, transfer are available for this. Postage at cost. Photos available, please contact me off the list.
