Possibly an obvious question. But what BB threading?
Which cranks and chainring are these? Please excuse the terrible pic...
@ectoplasmosis white industries I believe
Yup, White Industries.
Can someone identify the frame? Or at least what year it could be from? The brand is Diamant and frame material is alloy. 130 mm rear spacing, italian bb, 1" fork, internal routing for rear brake, tribal paintings. Seatpost is 27,2 mm, but I think that's not the original size. The fork is not a part of the frameset, I got it seperately. Seat tube is 62 cm c-t IIRC.
I've done some googling and I either find older steel Diamant road bikes or more current hybrid ones.
Not the best image but other Images I have are taken further away so identifying would be even harder I'd imagine.
Hi I have got this Iguana frame 531SL it is very much like a Mercian except for frame number which is RU12 and the seat binder is on the other side. I found a piece of paper with the original owners details an address in W14 and a phone number without the 0207 or 8 both of which are unobtainable.
Does anyone have any ideas of what it is?
It is for sale on eBay
Over BB guides, vertical dropouts, nutted brakes, lack of braze ons, Cinelli MC fork crown type is sort of 70's TT, loads of frame builders could turn out a really neat frame like that. SL morphed into Pro which should date it. Not an iguana lol Wally Green and the like made frames that shops sold on.
Thanks midlife :)
Does anyone know anything about the origin of this bike?
I've seen others like it in different sizes for sale and the sellers were saying that they are made by a frame builder from Evans Cycles.
It has mostly Campagnolo parts, except the brake and shift levers which are Shimano. I assume the original ones were replaced.
I can't identify the crankset, derailleurs and bottom bracket, although they seem to be Campagnolo. Any idea? The front derailleur has a Campagnolo logo on it but not the name of the model.
Not sure about the year of fabrication either.
Pedalroom post with current spec
F.W. Evans (which then became Evans) sold bikes and frames and IF the decals are original, it MIGHT be one of theirs.
Crankset looks like Sugino XD2.
Piece of advice, if you are to post on a forum, best to keep all info in one place rather than linking to another.
Case in point which is myself, I couldn't be bothered to click your links.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
