I am selling my old Rourke 653 frame. It’s not been used in a couple of years but with some TLC someone can enjoy it as much as I did!
Listing this as a project bike for two reasons:
I’m selling with:
Looking for £250 £175 as I need the space and would rather someone that has the resources can get this thing rolling again.
Collection from SE15.
Price drop £190
£190 for that is bonkers cheap. have a bump
What are the clearances on this? Mad bargain!
@Chak I’ll have a look tonight. Do you know what sizes specifically you’re looking for?
@Chak it currently has 25mm tyres on. You could probably get away with 28mm but I wouldn’t go larger than that.
The other option for the threaded BB is send it down to Argos in Bristol who will machine out the damaged section and braze or glue a new threaded insert in.
This retains the original BB shell.
My sister had this done on her bike last hear and Argos did a brilliant job.
(or threadless BB and sq taper cranks)
I like this. Have a bump.
Most good frame builders could do that I imagine....Dave at Colour Tech in Dartford would use the services of Geoff Roberts.
Last drop before we head off to the Bay.
Guessing headtube is 1 inch??
@picco it is
Hi - is this still for sale or did the Bay swallow it?
@Buda_ it is still for sale
great, so just for clarification, for 175 it's everything in the photo? i.e. f&f, wheels, drivetrain, shifters, stem, bars? If so leave it with me for a day or so and I'll give you a definite answer. I'm in se27 so easy enough to come and collect. Cheers.
Yep, 175 for the lot
Absolute bargain how is it still here
Don't want to queue jump, but v interested. I'm in SE15 so could come and look/collect
this is bonkers. someone buy it
@Gabeuk - go for it, I'm tied up for a few days at least and don't want to hold up the sale or stand in anyone's way. best of luck. Buda.
