A bit of history: I bought this bike second hand in March 2020 for commuting but I now work from home full-time. The guy I bought it from bought it from Brick Lane Bikes 7 years previous.
The bike is in perfect working order but the paintwork has seen better days. One small fingernail-sized dent in the downtube pictured below.
56cm seat tube (centre-to-top) / 56cm top tube (centre-to-centre)
Actual tyres not pictured as I’ve yet to swap them out for the Rubinos.
Pickup only from Berkhamsted.
Just curious as I'm a child of the 70's and too old for stainless steel , fork looks chromed, is it polished stainless steel? Is the Reynolds decal 1983.
Hi @midlife, as far as I’m aware the forks are polished stainless but I could be wrong. If they’re chromed I would expect to see it scratched off in places, which it isn’t. No visible rust but there might be some oxidisation if they truly are stainless steel. I’ll have to check tomorrow.
Don’t know about the Reynolds decal I’m afraid. The frame year is just passed on info from the previous owner. Hope that’s helpful
Inconclusive on the forks @midlife. Here's some more pics to draw your own conclusions from. Minor rust suggest it's either polished non-stainless steel or chromed as you say
+1 for defo chroming.....
Description updated to remove the stainless claim. Thanks for the heads up. Admittedly my knowledge is pretty limited in this area
Open to offers on this
Price drop to £500. I paid £600 originally. Starting to wonder if I overpaid 😬
Just discovered the bike was advertised here before https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/342847/
