For sale: Peugeot 753 Pro frame & matching fork.
Reynolds 753 tubes (both frame and forks marked as 753).
Chromed rear dropouts.
130mm rear dropouts (ie a road frame, not a track frame)
Bottle cage mounts.
Down tube shifter mounts.
Original paint (the condition is fine for a daily use bike, but if you want it to stand out it could do with a respray. I was going to run this as a daily commuter, and leave the paint as it is).
Purchased this 18 months ago to build up a light weight (753 is lightweight steel, and rides much nicer than popular steels like 531) daily use fixie commuter with an ENO eccentric hub. Unfortunately the frame is a tad small for me, so it's just sat around in a box since I purchased it. I have a 753 condor which fits me, so this one must go.
PLEASE CHECK OUT THE HIGH RES PHOTOS: I can take more photos, measurements etc as you require.
I can ship for 20 quid (will refund any difference if actual shipping is lower), otherwise collection from Cambridge or possibly meet in London. My ebay account is kiwichris1977 if you want to check my feedback for trading.
I will measure up the frame and upload dimensions later today. Its about 545mm centre to centre toptube. I think it takes a 27.2mm seatpost (will try a post in it today and update). I'm just under 6 foot, and I think it'd be best for someone in the 5'6 to 5'11 range, depending if you flat bar or drop bar it.
Price: 120 quid (I am looking for a Dura-ace 7800 rear brake caliper and a Dura-ace 7700 front brake caliper, and would consider these as partial swaps, but not looking for any other items to swap for).
£120 is very cheap for 753. Bargain bump.
To post use DHL via http://www.p4d.co.uk/
I have one of these in a larger size (25"). Very light indeed and lovely to ride. Good luck with the sale. :)
had it been a few cm shorter....but a good price....if no luck put it on Retrobike....deserving a bump in honour of Tom Simpson [Peugeot]
Why are you dredging threads? Please look for the correct thread.
Hi, still hasnt sold. Will take 100 quid for it now ... want to sell to fund another project. If the buyer comes to Cambridge to collect, saving me the hassle of posting, then 90 quid in cash will do.
The price is cheap because I want to sell it, and being vertical rear drop-outs, it's best suited to an eccentric hub build or a 1x9 setup.
Since I listed it, I have found the Dura-ace 7700 caliper I was after, but still after a rear 7800 caliper, or a good condition 7800 braze on front derailleur.
PM if interested.
Thanks for the retrobike idea, will look to advertise these now.
Additionally, I'm also selling a Campagnolo Record brake lever. This is a carbon one, which is the same size as the 10 speed levers from about 2005 era. I'll list in separately too.
I'm in Cambridge and I want it, but I'm 5.5 so it's probably too big for me.
Have another bump instead.
might be interested whats the frame size
Seattube sizes would be good.
Sorry for the delay, been busy.
I measure the top tube as 545mm centre to centre.
I get the same 545mm for the centre of the bb shell to the centre of the top tube, measuring inline with the seat tube.
This fits with what I measured when I decided it was a tad too small for me, as I ride a 560mm bikes.
545mm is 21.5 inches or there abouts. Not sure how Peugeot spec'd the bikes, so it could be a 21 or 22, depending if the did 21.5 as a size or not. But either way, I measure 545mm.
Additionally, I now have a digital camera (had to borrow one to take the listing photos), and if you'd like more pictures of pictures with the tape measure shown, let me know.
Hi, is the frame still for sale, if so could you give me the seat tube measurement from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top if the top tube - if its the right size, would you accept £100 posted, regards Andy.
Any chance of a Top tube measurement? ;)
Would you be able to tell say what headset/Bottom bracket measurements it takes? i.e. ISO or French?
Hi im 6 years late to the party lol
But is the bike frame still available?
They haven't logged in for 6 years.
Purely as a matter of interest (it being an ancient thread). How did the rear spacing get to be 130?
27.2 sounds wrong for the frame too. Did someone buy it, were they happy?
Poetic, there's a 753 chorus on ebay right now. Strip it.
I had one of these. it was built as a 126mm rear and the seatpost was something weird like 26.8 as its the continental gauge Reynolds tubeset.
Lucky for you mate! Planning to sell it? Heheh
What size is your beauty?
