• Up for sale is my beloved super. I believe the frame is early 80s as it is not labelled with a specific type of columbus tubing - I have been told that this only started happening in the mid 80s. An educated guess by a user on here tells me it is almost definitely custom drawn SL tubing. The frame is in acceptable condition with a lovely creamy white to pink fade. The previous owner has obviously tried to strip part of the chrome from the fork which has made it slightly less presentable, a perfectionist may want to get this re chromed but it didn't cause me any problems and has minimal surface rust so I lived with it!

    Size toptube - 58ctc, seat tube also 58ctc.

    spec - the majority of the components are early 90s athena/chorus.

    -front and rear derailleurs and brake levers, are Chorus (brake levers possible C-record also worth mentioning they have minimal splits in a few places)
    -Cranks, seat post and brakes (monoplanar) are Athena
    -BB is a campagnolo specific carbon tifosi. I can throw in a genuine good condition C-record BB for those purists for an extra cost if wanted.
    -The bike also has the coveted simplex friction shifters (the campagnolo team even chose these over campag c-rec in the tour de france!)
    -The wheels are Campagnolo's famous Shamal model, 16 spokes with an 8 speed cassette. (they make an awesome noise at speed!)
    -Saddle is a Selle San Marco Concor reissue, few bumps on the side but otherwise great condition.
    -stem and bars are Cinelli criterium (65-44)
    Headset is a modern unbranded steel one.

    I will take some more detailed pictures this week. Just give me a shout if you want any specific pictures. The bike is located in Bristol. I can potentially post it if it is bought in the next few days but I will be out of town as of saturday for some time so it will have to be collected from Bristol from then on. I can potentially arrange a courier service however.

    Price is £550

    Many thanks!

    ps - this is advertised elsewhere

  • Sexy beast. Awful bar angle though

  • Yeah that was when I first put on those bars, needless to say I adjusted them..

  • More pictures as promised.

















  • Id be interested in the wheels and saddle in the unlikely event you split...

  • interested in the calipers, chainset & pedals if you split...

  • Gorgeous bike! I'll 2nd dibs on wheelset and pedals if u split :) good luck with the sale.

  • shiyyyattt - tempted

  • if i could just collect this, i would be sticking the dibs down.

  • Hi there I will take the bike if you can post to Skipton in North Yorkshire. Please email davidhudson@hodgson-meakin.co.uk
    or text or phone 07912-032659
    Kind regards David

  • OMFG! This bike would fetch twice that down here...thankfully, too big!

  • I'm aware I would get more money if I split but I no longer have the time do to so. I know 550 is reasonable but I didn't think it was dirt cheap.. Perhap I should raise the price ;)

    I thought 550 was suitable.

  • Is it still for sale?
