I bought this frame from Apollo on here quite a few years back. Shortly after I got it I noticed a small hole under the chain stay, some corrosion. I had it professionally repaired by Oak Cycles and resprayed RAL 5011 with a lacquer finish- quite a classic old British sports car kind of colour. I rode it pretty sparingly for a couple of years and then it sat in my parents' garage, until now!
Here are the details:
Brian Rourke 90's in Reynolds 653 frame/forks
63cm c-t seattube
62cm c-c seattube
59.5cm c-c toptube
Signature wraparound seat-stays
8 Speed Campagnolo groupset. A mix of Mirage/Athena/Avanti.
Mavic CXP 30 rims, Campag hubs.
Continental Grand Sport 700x25mm tyres.
Selle Italia SLR saddle.
Shimano SPD pedals.
Thomson Elite seat post.
Good parts- It's a British made custom built steel frame. It's very comfortable. I think it looks great. It has old school upright geometry, so although '63cm' sounds massive it will still fit a reasonable range of (taller) riders.
Bad parts- Cable inners are a little tatty. Small tear to bar tape on one of the drops. Paint is not perfect. There are some marks throughout. There is a screw on cable stop on the chain-stay as I forgot to ask for this to be brazed on when repaired (doh!). Whilst not aesthetically pleasing, it does its job.
Asking price is: £375
Bike is in Catford, south Lewisham- SE6.
That’s lovely how tall are you?
Thanks! I am 6’7. Saddle is set at a pretty rough height and should probably be a little higher.
My pal is gonna message you about this :)
Interested, will pm
