Wanted: 51-52cm 80s-90s steel frame.

Posted on
  • Hi, I'm looking for a small steel frame. Preferably from the 90s.

    130mm rear spacing or pliable enough to cold set.
    Braze on fd preferred.


  • Budget? High end ? Low end ? In between ? F+F or just a frame?

  • Thanks and sorry for neglecting the all important financials.
    Mid-range but i could be persuaded to high end for the right frame.

    Frame and forks preferably.
    Down tube shifter mounts a must.


  • Ribble 52cm 653....braze on fd and d/t bosses.
    Excellent condition, just a little too small for me.
    Shown below built up......

  • No worries - this way you don't get bogged down by stuff that's not appropriate for you. Saying that, if interested towards the high end, have a Gios Compact Pro and Nago Tecnos Art Decor (full bike but may split) small framesets in storage, need a week or so to get them.

  • Hi Marky,

    Nice bike.

    Not 100% the style I was looking for but may still be interested.
    Would you be able to send me some more photos?

    What kind of price were you thinking?

  • Hi,

    Please do send over photos details of these frames when you access them,.

    I particularity like the look of the Gios.

  • Nice and full tricolore as well.

  • Looking for around £150 posted....

  • Hi Mark,

    Thanks for sending that through. Bike looks in very good condition.
    The price seems reasonable too.

    I'll weigh up my options and get back to you.

    Thanks again
