  • I picked this up at 9 am this morning at a church sale down the road, well worth getting up for on your day off

    got it for £30, can't work out what it is, if anyone can help then please let me know and I will list the components to help identify it (it's a right mongrel)

    This will be my first single speed! I can feel my cherry about to burst. All over your faces.

    Take a drive side pic and we may be able to help a bit. Also get some better shots of the bits.

  • What can it be?

    I'll just leave this here

    Holy sh********t!

  • best seatpost arrangement ever, more pics...

    Its a Peugeot 5000 Richard Virenque replica in full Festina team colours from 1997, specced with Record/Athena parts - i will post up more pics when i get it back to the UK - here is a catalog pic of the same frame, though the model pictured is a lower end one.

  • @Gizmond: wtf! nice buy. I know you're gonna keep it tasteful...
    @VV: how are you gonna get 3 bikes home?

    Okay thanks, here we are. Sorry they are shitty phone pictures.

    It has suntour alpha 5000 deralleur and the handlebars are Atax with a Peugeot plug in the end of one of them. Maillard front and Pelissier rear hub with a Mavic rim, 6 speed rear 2 front.

    Campagnolo front mech and seatpost bolt, Simplex shifters, CLB brakes and levers

    I thought it could be a Peugeot but a quick glance at the catalogue scans didn't bring anything up. A guy in a shop said it's probably high tensile and french, that was all he could say

    Also Gizmond: that gives me a hard-on

  • A few months till I'm home, but this beast is my 'current/future' project.

    UPDATE: I have discovered, through some detetctive work, that this is a Peugeot Carbolite/HLE frame from the 80s, I think its a PH12 from '83. Nothing special, so I'm just going to do it up cheap as. Anyone got a spare rear wheel they can sell me?

  • althought even if it those cheap Carbolite frame, it's lighter than your usual cheap steel frame, it was defintely lighter than my old Bianchi Pista frame.

    so even thought it's a heavy steel, the tubing seemed to be thin enough to the point that the weight isn't that bad, if build up carefully (i.e. with says Mavic Open Pro instead of those big Deep V wheels) you could easily have a nice reasonably light bike to poodle around town with.

  • nout wrong with carbolite

  • polishing a turd. Quite happy with the result, being a noob, obviously.

  • My new singlespeed, which im still finding weird to ride after a couple of months of fixed only riding. Will alternate between the Bianchi Pista and this (Dolan SS) until my knees have completely recovered!

  • Sorry for the thread dredge, two weeks abroad, just had to say major SCHWING!

    Storage? Noooo... Can't believe it's 28 year old NOS. Very envious.

    I promised the wife and Aroogah no more bikes this year but had to have this British icon.

    NOS 1981 Team TI Raleigh SBDU pista frame.

    It will probably go into storage until next year.

  • Thanks, I think it's Vic, one of the trixie chix.

    Well, I'd kinda agree that you puppy killed it, I would have stuck with the blue and yellow but I do love my blue and yellow...

    But as the decals are white with black edges I think it would look quite nice decaled up. Looks like yours were starting to come off too before the respray? Unfortunately Orrell decals don't seem to last that well.

    Like the fact your bars are period for the frame too.

    This came up on eBay while I was away, glad it wasn't my size!

    Im glad you posted this up Fox as there's been a few updates since this was taken.
    Got it stripped, puppy-killed and then resprayed by the local auto painter. It's come out mint and significantly better than a powdercoat, although somewhat more expensive as well.

    Still got to swap the cranks out and have the rear wheel built but have the old flip flop on there for the time being. For the eagle eyed, no im not running it brakeless SS. I've only got a 3/32 chain so couldn't place on the track cog.

    For those who are wondering, the bars in the top 2 pictures are cut down 3TTT bio quartettos. They're late 80's model pursuit bars. Previously owned by Jos and Eyebrows I believe.

    Crane - Yes all Neil Orrell's start with NA xxxx. If you are getting decals, let me know how they come out. I obviously need to get my gritty hands on some as well.

    Fox - Your Bluebird is gorgeous. Well done on the build. There's not many Neil's around from what I've seen. Apart from yours and Crane's there's a maroon triple triangle track that belongs to one of the lovely ladies here but can't remember her name.
