Steel Dolan prototype [?] track frameset (59/60cm)

Posted on
  • Hello.

    Selling off more of my random projects. Bought this from a seller a bit ago who didn't have much information - he got this through a LFGSS connection apparently 10/15 years back. As far as he knew this was a Terry Dolan prototype (which I haven't been able to confirm, but looks quite similar to this other Dolan frame sold here) . I believe it could be Columbus tubing (but am not sure) - weighs 1.88kg for a large frame. Has gippiemme drop outs, and what looks like an unstamped Cinelli CCM bottom bracket shell (?).


    1. The frameset - 59.5cm seat tube c-t. 59cm c-c top tube. 195mm headtube. Takes 27.2mm seatpost.
    2. Stronglight headset (brand new). It's 30.2mm and I was able to push/slap it into the headtube by hand which was weird, but now seems to fit quite tight and there's no movement.
    3. Chrome forks - believe these are NOS, designed for 26 x 1 1/4" or 26" x 1 3/8" wheels, but fit 700cc wheels (see below). The distance between brake hole and rim is around 45/50mm.
    4. Bottom bracket which is just a surnace/sturmey 137mm (?) I think, but can remove this for the buyer, standard British threading.

    Small ding on top tube/some surface rust from storage. Was coated in this gray primer paints/etc I believe, but not painted.

    Looking for £150 for the frame+forks and above (sorry for the full build pictures, have not taken it apart yet).
