Can you help to identify these frames, bikes or parts?

  • The brake drillings, fork blades, bottle bosses, look of the track ends. It's hard to tell from those pics, but the geo looks more relaxed than traditional track geo. It's possible of course that it was built as a road fixed frame, but then I'd expect to see mudguard eyes - people used that kind of frame for winter training.
    Having said all that, it looks like a nicely built steel frame under the powdercoat - that seat cluster is nicely put together.

  • two circular bosses on the inside of the right one

    preparations for one of these?

    Short-lived Campag invention called a Portacatena.

    Cheers, would be great to know the make. I'm going to strip it all down and re paint soon, just want to get a few bits to finish it off

  • The seat cluster actually looks a lot like my Argos track and road frames. Really good builders.

  • They do look very similar! Would I be able to find out by the number at the bottom? It's difficult to make it out fully.

  • You might be lucky. Argos Racing Cycles still have frame records - if you get the number you can send them an email and they might be able to confirm or deny.

  • Kept looking and found this:

    which appears to have the same head lugs.

    I forgot; there is no serial # anywhere.

  • Hey guys

    Today I got the chance to buy the following bicycle. I was in doubt for a long time, but didn't take it. I'm still in doubt to buy it, so that's the reason of this post.

    First off, the frame has no decals. The paint is very good. It's only stamped "56" on the bottom of the bottom bracket (framesize) and the drop-outs are stamped "Gipiemme".
    The tubing is Columbus Gara.

    Remarkable facts about the frame:

    • the lugs are pantographed with an M (not Merckx, not Moser). Anyone who recognizes these M's?

    • the toptube is crimped, Colnago style

    • the downtube starts rounds, becomes oval in the middle but ends round again

    • the seattube is cutout for the rear wheel

    If anyone has a clue or has seen some of these elements on frames before, please let me know! I would like to figure out what this frame is.

  • On a bike I bought at the weekend. They're attached to Galli caliper brakes, if that helps, but the levers have no markings on them as far as I can see. Somebody's bunged a pair of Shimano hoods on, 105 I think. And backwards at that. Anyway, I need new hoods but don't know what kind! Help?

  • get the dia comp non aero hoods.

  • Cheers, I did some more investigation since and saw they looked pretty similar to some dia compes. They are aero levers though.

  • Did you ever get an I'd on this? Although it has Fleur de Lis detail it is definitely not by Gillotts. Very fine frame all the same. Mark

    Initial thought was Masi
    When they did round-oval-round seatubes they also had a more rounded M on their logo - They've since gone back to the square M.
    Worth considering.
    Here's an example of what I'm talking about

    Thanks! It would be great being a Masi, but I don't count on it.

    I'm looking at it from another perspective.. What if it's not an M, but for example a B?

    EDIT: I think this is solved, it's Martelly! Way too many resemblances with this frame: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll­?ViewItem&item=370877028623&item=3708770­28623&lgeo=1&vectorid=229466

  • Can anyone identify this brand or maker so that I can source what type of material it's made of. Thanks a lot guys!

  • Marin bikes, made of steel.

    Awesome. I looked around the net and i just couldn't find any more info on this particular fork, do you know what type of steel it is? Many thanks!

  • do the infallible patented "ding or donk" test.

    ding = quality
    donk = gas pipe

    Hahaha, I will have to try that

  • Hello

    Have you ever seen a bike with colours this awesome? Also, do you recognise the brand of the sticker on the head tube??? The bike has stickers saying Manuel on the down tube and seat tube, but Google yields nothing with this search..

  • Hi, i want to buy a pair of old Campy pedals, but i have some doubts about being genuine.. They look like superleggeri but both have a "bump" in the middle of the pedal.. Any info would help. Thank you.

  • They're probably Campag but may or may not be Superleggeri depending on whether they have a Ti axle - check with a magnet.

  • Hello everyone. Could you tell me what kind of frame this is? And maybe how much could it cost?

  • ok, thanks ncjlee i'll google more on the subject, but until now i haven't seen any model of Campa pedals with that "bump/hump" in the middle...i'll search further.
