• Hi all,
    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)
    Athena headset
    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

  • lovely.

  • 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

  • Proper lush

  • 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
