Frame rescued and restored by Skull & Biscuits (repainted by Bob Jackson), see this thread: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/304844/
I had bought and built this up as a single speed commuter – I live in West Dulwich and my journeys tend to be relatively flat. But now I’m moving to the other side of Crystal Palace, and with a heavy bag I think I’ll need gears after all… so I can’t really justify keeping it if I’m not going to be using regularly.
It’s a lovely ride, looks great and will make someone very happy. Currently set up at 46-18, which I have found ideal for most of London (except the steepest of hills).
It has a couple of very small chips on the chain side stay, and a small mark by the headtube lug (which Bob Jackson inspected and gave the all clear).

Moved to Gumtree
Looks great. You can’t just add a vintage gearset to give you the range?
Thanks. I could, but I think if I can't get my costs covered I'd rather keep it as a single speed for those days that I feel less weak!
Open to offers.
Ahh nice 👍
This is still available. I've upgraded the brake levers to TRP RRLs, and it continues to ride very well. But I want to sell this soon, so Gumtree beckons...
