  • 531 frame ,made postwar 1940s /1950s i think , lovely rear dropouts and fine brazing, spearpoint lug on seat tube . BB shell serial number 1938 dont think this is a indication of year , "claud butler 194? something "stamped on the down tube , super thin pencil stays ......lovely bit of british cycling history !

    frame has been stripped + lacquered to show the brazing ,(armourtex £70) sadly someone trimmed the gear /brake bosses to make a "fixie" before i got it , the original benelux lever band still on frame , as is rear mech hanger so still could be turned back into road bike with love though i rather like the fillet brazed spots ...........

    sale includes frame + forks , newish bottom bracket , new stronglight a9 alloy headset, + good used seatpost , been built up for 6 months since lacquering but rarely ridden as just too big for me :(
    seat tube 57 top tube 58 .

    £100(down from 120) ono

  • It looks cool mate, but what is Armortex?

  • What's the oln of the rear wheel

  • armortex are frame painters , they stripped and lacquered it. OLN i will measure but i believe i have 126 mm hub in there right now , i guess it was originally for 120 mm

  • Have the forks been lacquered aswell?
    Is the seatpost pictured the one included in the sale?. Also what bottom bracket is included? has it done many miles?

  • yes fully lacquered frame + forks , seatpost is one in photo of full build , nothing fancy but nice enough , bottom bracket is about 6 months old but like i say hardly ridden since build as its too big !

  • Really nice, looks great built up with those drilled levers.

  • just needed a brooks really . if someone wants the full bike i would ask £350 , nuovo record / ma40 wheels recently built . gb bars and stem , mafac NOS levers + gum hoods , mafac callipers, panaracer paselas ,andel cranks, drilled 46t ring, 16t sturmey on rear, stronglight a9 alloy headset , turbo perforated saddle .

  • Hi,

  • my height is 5 foot 10 , this is a fraction too big for me as its a 58 top tube / 57 down tube .
