• In a bit of a late Sunday night idea I thought I need to built a classic steel lugged Randonneur bike. You know canti brakes, tiny Nitto silver front rack with a fancy bag, old shimano mtb groupset, maybe a brooks, hubdynamo? Sure!

    However priorities changed and I'd much rather spend money on pimping my hard tail. So this beautiful frame set is up for sale again. I bought it on eBay for £102 + £15 shipping and I'd like to have that back.

    Here is the original eBay Ad with some more pictures: https://ebay.us/uw2WAV

    Pickup in SE17
    £117 SOLD

    EDIT:

    Because a lot of people have asked:
    I don't really know more about this frame than the information I gave above and what was in the eBay description. I am basically passing it on as I received it.

    On a side note though: Looking at the lack of mudguard bosses this might be more of a road bike than a tourer?

  • Lovely stuff, was watching on eBay, love the fork crown logos 👀

  • Sorry undibs, good luck with sale

  • Real nice - might be mafac/centre pull brazes rather than cantis as they look quite high.

  • I am pretty sure they are cantis. Centre pull / direct mount studs would sit way higher like on this fork: https://www.instagram.com/p/CF1M0aEFweZ/­?igshid=1o9owmvq1f1jq

  • Sorry @Oddo yeah maybe you’re right. Just look quite high and have what looks like mafac bolts in them

  • Be aware that there are two different diameters used for canti mounts. Most (and modern ones) are 6 mm diameter. My 1982 frame has 7 mm diameter canti mounts. These have been difficult to find brakes for. Also important is the width. To this end, you need the brake arms to have fully-adjustable eyebolt things. I have ordered some old Suntour CX brakes which I hope will fit on the 7mm mounts.

    currently back in this phase, hence finding this thread...

  • TT is measured 56 ctc like mentioned @ebay?
    The frame looks a bit taller/longer.

    If shipping on buyers cost is an option for you, I'm interested.

  • I can remeasure tonight but I am sure it's correct. I agree though the head tube looks quite long making it look big. I could potentially ship it but only with a courier who pick it up at my place.

  • Can Confirm this is 56cm top tube c-c and 57 cm seat tube c-c.

  • What is the rear spacing? Might be interested if old fashioned (120). MTB group comment suggests 135?
