Subject: [CR]English Frame "unknown" for Sale

O.K. List,

Since you all did so well on the last “unknown” bike, here’s another!


The frame in question was a whole bike from the “Aladdin’s Cave” group; a garage full of English bikes I recently purchased all for one money. Yes, I do like to play!

I decided to relieve this little beauty of most of her parts to “maximize” my profit (“Good God Man, he’s gonna try to make money from do’n this!”)

Well, here she is:


Seat tube: 55 cm. ctr to ctr. (That’s 21 ½ inches)

Top tube: 56.5 cm. ctr to ctr. (and that’s 22 ¼)

Chain stay: 44 cm. (17 ¼ inches)

She looks to be a good frame built of Reynolds 531 double butted through out with Prugnat cut out lugs and Campagnolo 1010 drop outs front and rear. The adjuster screws work fine.

I have left the Campagnolo Super Record headset (Excellent condition; very smooth and looks good) in place as is also an Italian sealed bottom bracket axle and cups (“F.T.” brand “Made in Bologna”; looks to be very nice stuff! Looks like O.M.A.S. quality). I figure the headset is worth a hundred bucks and fifty more for the bottom bracket assembly. At two hundred for the frame, take the whole enchilada for $295.00

Nice math, huh?

Please take a look at the photos:


Paint is a dark anthracite metallic; very shinny but she has some very minor scratches in two spots (where the down tube shifter clamp goes and on the down tube where the cable guide goes ( there is some hard plastic protector “under” where the clamp would go that needs to be scraped off). There is also a really super tiny dent on the seat tube about two inches above the bottom bracket. It’s like an eighth of an inch long and almost nothing deep. But it’s there and now you know. It affects nothing. I never noticed it till I took the bike apart. I’m not good enough to even attempt to get it on “film”.

Also included is a Silca frame fit black pump with a Campagnolo head with BLUE FEET! Blue feet are priceless; their made of unobtanium!

Take a look, it’s free, and venture a guess!
