I initially picked up this bike in France due to the amazing colour scheme and wanted to do a neo-retro project. However, I found out that the rear derailleur hanger was bent so I turned it into a singlespeed instead.
The frame was built and painted in 1999, for a local cycling club in the north of France. All threads are BSA so no compatibility issues. The overall condition is decent, with a couple of paint chips and on tiny dent where the drop have hit the top tube.
The RD hanger is bent and the paint is chipped around that area. There is a spot of surface rust on the other stay, nothing major but still worth mentioning.
All in, a lightweight & colourful conversion . Would make a great daily ride.
Test rides from Stoke Newington, I am after £185 -> £170 -> SOLD FOR £160 so not a vast amount over the price of the new parts.
I have other bar tape / chain options if you are allergic to anti
**SOLD SOLD SOLD **
I rode the bike into work today and it is genuinely a great frame.
The gemeotry makes is feel compact so more like a 54cm. I would say it is good for someone around 5Ft9.
Price drop to £170
That's another beauty you've created
That’s a rad paint job Vince... reminds me of this top I recently saw, they belong together... glws.
Not sure if this is supposed to be sarcastic but I can put a normal chain and normal bar tape!
The tape is unbelievably bright - @cheekysnaker saw it in the flesh yesterday...
In a dream world, someone would get the RD hanger fixed and use this geared.
The picture doesn't do the tape justice. Madness!
No sarcasm at all !
I loved the violet motobecane you mounted a while back
That was flash too !
I do not have the time to get it fixed sadly, it is rather flair (specially with that tape). Someone else with the time to invest could though!
Price drop bump - now £160.
I will split if I can't get that...
New parts came to more than half the asking price:
Im out of london til late august, just in case. Will pay 160 if you can keep it that long.
This has now sold.
