  • So you fancy a little gem?

    Bought a while ago for the Mrs. Not even done a mile as it was too small for her. Sold it to her sister, who didn't ride it either. She did put some swept cruiser bars on it though (pics coming soon).

    • Originally an Orbit America (see original thread for discussion)
    • 531 tubing
    • Restored in correct Italian pearl
    • Period decals
    • Hand built wheels
    • Full Shimano 105 highly polished group set
    • 7 speed shifters
    • MKS Sylvan peddals
    • MKS toe clips w/ leather
    • Absolutely superb


    The pics don't really do it complete justice as it really is fantastic.

    So if you have a home to give this and short legs, let me know.

    original thread with more pics and details (back when i used to be OCP).

  • Where are you based mate

  • In Leeds. Is that any good to you?

  • Hi Preset, interested in this. How tall is your mrs and how much for postage?

  • She's 5'8". It should suit anyone between 5'4" - 8", but compared to her old bike, she wasn't a fan of the drops. Postage is approx £20. If it's any less, I'll refund.

  • Hi Preset - my cousin lives in Leeds can he view the bike - my number is 07789658472.



  • Still for sale

  • Available again...

  • Very nice this. How much for postage to Sweden you reckon?

  • :D 1055 gruppo (105sc parts) looks too much like A550 (RX-100) with this polish.. :)

    Oh, forget about it, the two groups are nearly identical, save the ball bearings vs. bushings in the calipers, some minor improvements on the derailleur jockey bolts and hub seals.

  • Price drop £350 + postage

  • Sweet machine, GLWS...

  • Hey +Preset - did you say it doesn't have drops on it anymore? I'd be interested if had the drops that you feature in the pics.

    I'm 5'5 and usually take a 50cm frame so a little worried it would be too large for me...but may take the risk. My also be able to do pickup in Leeds to save on postage.

  • Hey VeloCatso. I do still have the drops as pictured. Also, be assured the groupset is all 1055 (105 sc), you can make it out in the pics if you look close enough.

    Collection in Leeds would be perfect if you could.

  • .,

  • @Preset I have been having a think and I am going to pass as I don't think the frame will fit me. Sad times as I think this is a great bike. Thanks. x

  • No worries.

  • Hey, is this still going? Could be interested.

  • @benjaminphoto still available. If you want more pics, i'll post them.

  • Price drop £345

  • Is it still available? If so am interested...
