  • Hello everyone!

    I'm selling very nice american handmade frameset Serotta CSI, which I got as a gift from my best mate around a year ago. Never got enough money/time to build it up, and decided to take it out of my basement and sell it.
    Frame is in good but not perfect condition, got many paint chips and scratches but no dents/dings. I tried to show everything on photos. Someone before me made some not-matching blue touch-ups on paint chips - many of them on chain stay. Also two big paint chips at the top back of seat tube. Some signs of rust under top tube. Frame comes with Dura Ace headset and BB, 3ttt stem and bars.

  • on photos one cable hanger is missing but I got it - don't worry.

  • good plice!

  • fffuuuuuuuuuuuu

  • I like this, I wonder if it would be too small for me?

    Also the paint is a bit cained, what happened under the top tube to start that rust off?

  • Don't know if it would be too small for you;) Yeah, paint it's not in great condition, there are three bigger scratches with a bit of rust but nothing 'deep'.

  • Absolutely 100% that these are scratches, not tube buckles from a front end crash?

    = once bitten, twice shy.

  • Yes these are scratches. I didn't ride this frame = didn't have crash for 100%. As I said, paint is not really good and got some wrinkles in couple places. I think you could easily remove rust with steelwool.

  • I had similar rusty bubbles on my old steel frame. 100% rust and not crash
    mine appeared over time without crashing

  • Looks a little bit like there are some bulges towards the top of the seattube in a couple of the pictures. Thats not the case is it?

    Mine has some slight rust bubbles (just lifting the paint slightly) in the same place under the toptube. I also paid significantly more for mine and it came without the cable adjusters which turned out to be a very expensive addition. Great frames, great price

  • I've made him an offer via PM, If he accepts I'll get the frame a) blasted and b) checked on a framebuilders alignment table.

    I don't want a repeat of my last second hand frame where a hidden dent led to it cracking.

  • Price drop: £295

  • provisionally sold.

  • lovely, can't get enough of the Serotta's popping up at the moment..

  • @Dammit
    I know nothing of this tubeset, but I assume it's going to be 'fancy' steel ... would blasting be all that good an idea? I'm thinking of Gustav's 853 frame blasting experience where pinholes appeared through the steel.

  • Who did the blasting Skully?

    I think a lot depends on the media used- this will be going to Vaz, I would hope he knows what he is doing.

  • Picked this up earlier tonight, I'll drop it off to Talbot Frameworks tomorrow to have the rust inspected.

    Giving it the once over the stem bolt is corroded in place, and the bolts head has been rounded off (presumably during attempts at removal), if the rust is given the ok what's the best way of getting this stem out- angle-grinder straight through the section that goes into the fork steerer, an inch or so above the headset?

  • I think that this is a 1998 frame in "Patriot":

    Colerado is a set made by Columbus just for Serotta who have magical unique requirements.. seriously I have no idea why they need there own tubing but the weight distribution on those bad boys is incredible...

    I believe colorado concept tubing is made by reynolds and shaped by serotta but i could be wrong. They were made for more than a few years so perhaps columbus also provided tubes for that tubeset at one point.

  • Good news- the rust under the top tube is nothing to worry about.
    Bad news- needs a new seat tube.

  • Sorry to hear that. you have some crap luck with used frames. Why does it need replacing?

  • Conjecture, but the damage is consistent with too large a diameter post being hammered into the frame.

  • Damn that's bad luck, this looked beautiful. What are you going to do Dammit?
