The times up and there must be someone out there that will house/ride this special project for a fair price.
Original build thread here - https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/237676/
Gonna keep this short and sweet. If you know about classic track bikes you'll know about Zeus. I used this as my first track machine and rode it in the harsh winter and glorious windy summers at Herne Hill. Eventually building it up to pretty much complete period correctness. Done it justice I think but now its really just gathering dust and not even being looked.

Unsure of what an honest price would be for this but looking at previous frames sold on ebay and the likes, I'd be wanting something like £sold for the full build.
More than happy to discuss this with anyone interested but make sure you come with a good attitude. If you think it's worth less then feel free to leave a comment and reasons why.
I can include a set of track chainrings, used hubs and other bits if there is any interest in the asking price.
I have Zeus catalogs, jerseys, NOS parts from hubs to tubular holders. Which might also be for sale if anyone makes decent offers on them. Photos can be seen in my old flickr account - https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=110135386%40N05&view_all=1&text=zeus
Postage to UK and EU available - Priced at cost plus insurance fees and Paypal Fees.
Viewing available from N19.
Alternatively, if anyone has a bike shop or cafe type place that would consider hanging it on a wall then I might just be willing to keep it if it doesn't have any solid interest before the end of the month.
That’s lush. GLWS
bump for a beautiful bike
I concur wholeheartedly...and at a very fair price. GLWS:)
Thanks to the above compliments.
Have updated the thread with photos. The frame is slightly darker in person just that light is all over the place atm.
Anyone in for £800?
This prob has to go before the end of summer... anyone interested if this was £650?
Lovely a steal at that price for someone
It needs to go to a good home sadly..
Final call on the forum for £55o
Wow, this is a steal at that price. GLWS BigH
I've had a few people message about this over the last month. -
I will not sell this to someone who has just signed up.
I will not sell this to anyone outside of the EU.
I don't even really want to sell it anymore so I'm going to think about taking this offsale soon.
Finally coming to accept that this now needs to go to a new home. Final offer price, cash or paypal gift on collection - I will post via paisley freight to UK but not abroad.
Final call for this before I split it for parts and fling it on eBay ..
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
