Acquired this from eBay about a month ago but realised I have neither use nor money for it really. It's super light and all-round amazing original condition - one chip to seat stay pictured and some pitting to dropouts and eyelets but per photos otherwise fairly pristine paint. Since buying it I swapped out an ugly ITM ahead stem on an adapter and far too wide 44cm cinelli handlebars for a Nitto dynamic stem and new 40cm Nitto B115AA handlebars, but not yet put on bartape. Other components as listed:
Frame and fork both reynolds 653 - 47cm st ctc 49cm tt ctc
Group - campagnolo Athena 8speed (apart from rear derailleur is mirage)
Wheels - 650c mavic open 4 rims on campagnolo hubs (small wheel size means no toeverlap for us shorties!)
Vittoria rubino 23c tyres - new, barely any wear at all to tread
seatpost - not sure, has insertion scratches on back
Saddle - selle Italia flite
pedals - not included
In terms of rider height suitability, it fits me at 5'4" but I would say probably wouldn't work for anyone much taller. Probably ideal for someone around 5'2"-5'4" - average height woman or short guy?
View/collect in E5 - I'm after £450 for it
Just for interest there's a thread on Retrobike about Lloyd frame numbers and when/ who it was made for. The thread OP has the original book where the info was written
Thanks for this info I’ll send that guy the frame number and see if I can find out more. eBay seller said it was made early 2000 though and retrobike guy says his book goes up to 1999 - let’s hope one of them is wrong!
eBay seller was wrong! Frame number starts 95 so it obviously dates from 1995!! The plot thickens
Am interested, will PM
