I bought this frame from fyxomatosis for too much money back in the heady days of 2007. Was sold to me as a Hillman, but it's not. Not an SBDU Raleigh either, but I had it sprayed up as one because I've always wanted one. Nice frame none the less. Seat tube and top tube are both 57 cm ctc.
Record Pista high flange hubs on Mavic (front) and Fiamme (rear) sprint rims, spokes tied and soldered, Vittoria Pista tubs, 14t sprocket
Record Pista cranks (165m), modern Record Pista chainring (48t)
Cinelli 2A track stem (120mm)
Cinelli Pista 67-39 handlebars
Gran Sport (?) headset
Nuovo Record (?) seatpost
Everything is in good condition apart from a few chips to the paint (top tube, chain/seat stays) and some damage to the fork decals from fitting a clamp-on brake. Some scratching to the clamp area on the bars, also shown in pics.
Looking for £600 -> price drop to £550 -> £500 -> £450 -> £400. Collection from N15, or can meet within a reasonable distance or at Lee Valley track.
That's a Raleigh/Carlton fork crown though, is it not?
Awesome bike !!!
Lots of nice makers used twin plate fork crowns like that BITD
I've seen the fork crown on a couple of high end Raleighs which is sort of what inspired the respray, but as @midlife points out, not unique.
It really is! You should buy it!
I've got a Special CNC track frame with this twin plate style crown.
Monday morning price drop: £500
Yeah angles dont look right to be a Raleigh but lovely looking bike non the less... and great price. GLWS!
I had an SBDU track frame with the same fork crown, it's a prugnat i believe. They are lovely frames, i should never had sold it. GLWS
Last price drop before it goes on eBay. Someone take this off my hands!
