A few bits I have not use for at the moment.
Collection only from Southend as I have no time at the moment to pack the frames/bike I am afraid.
Early fillet brazed 1946 Hobbs of Barbican frameset
Seat tube 59.5cm centre to top of seat tube / 57.5cm centre to top of top tube
Top tube 57cm centre to centre (measured alongside the toptube)
Seatpost diameter 26.8mm
Front spacing 97mm
Rear spacing 110mm
I do not know which model it is. Somebody might help with this.
Frame and fork (nearly) matching numbers. Fork is 4603342 and frame 4602342 so it seems that the person in charge of numbering messed up a digit. Either way, a 1946 frame.
It had a stuck seatpost that has been professionally removed by Winston at Mario Vaz.
The frame is straight. No dents or dings. Some of the paint, which is not original, around the brazing flaked so I have removed it to check and everything seems ok.
Tubing unknown, although the steerer tube has got the Accles and Pollock stamp, so potentially could be the whole frame on Accles and Pollock.
Quite light for its size.
It has got 1 mudguard eyelet missing on the fork and the reflector eyelet on the right seat stays. Both could be re brazed prior to painting. A small chip at the top of the head tube.
Bottom bracket threads are all good.

This has been painted over at some point and has scratches and chips but no dents or dings.
Comes with the headset, BB which spins freely but will need servicing, lamp bracket, the seat pin which is not seized, head badge and the braze on pulley for Sturmey Archer gears.
1974 Raleigh Worksop Refinished by Mario Vaz
This one has got Mario Vaz own decals, not a recent respray but the look of it.
Gipiemme fork ends and dropouts.
Tange headset that feels smooth but has got some corrosion on top nut.
Somebody has done an amateur attempt to braze on mudguard and rack bosses, doesn't look nice but these can easily be removed if respraying.
Seat tube 54.5cm CTT
Top tube 54.5cm CTC
Spacing 100mm front, 124 mm rear
Seatpost diameter 26.8mm

I've got this Saracen MTB, Tange tubing.
Scratches here and there but no dents or cracks.
Shimano hubs, no name rims, original Saracen tyres that might need replacing.
Shimano 8 speed v brake pods but set up for 7 gears at the moment.
Everything works as it should except for the front mech that changes well going up but not going down or viceversa, cannot remember. Shifter works well but might need fine tuning.
The pods which are for V brakes so decided to go for them instead of cantis. One arm not from the set but very similar in shape.
Chainset is Shimano as well as front mech. Can check the parts number to search for model. Sealed BB, not brand new but works well.
Seatpost is Kalin, stripped Velo saddle, Kalin Saracen stem, alloy pedals(rusty axles but spin well).
