Humble backyard south east London bicycle rescuer and seller..
Prior to a few years ago I had never even ridden a bike in London, fast forward a few years, I've erected a nice little bike shed in my garden with a wide selection of frames to build up and lots of tools!
Im originally from Italy, where the Eroica takes place, but have realised this only recently (about the eroica, not my birthplace).
Part of what I do is scout for complete bikes or bits like old frames usually in junkyard condition around various markets and do my best to make them look appealing and ridable. Im looking to further my knowledge and skill level so I can one day, reconvert bikes to their former glory or cooler.
I also import vintage Italian racers, as I travel back to my home country every so often and do some digging there and bring them back.
Lastly, I like riding fixed so also do a lot of fixed gear conversions and am generally in awe of nice njs/track/pista/fixie stuff!
I'm totally self-taught, learning through trial and error, youtube videos and the really nice local bike shop boys who are surely getting tired of my daily visits for problem-solution queries.
Im here to share my end results, find a few buyers (or collectors in the case of my Italian imports) and to generally learn more about the craft of building nice ridable machines.
There we go ;)
Most recent activity
2nd dibs on veloce calipers!!
Sure, let me know your deets ;)
Selection of old wheels (most can go) and the BB/cranks for the Viscount ;)
Trying to clear out a few bits and I'd appreciate a winner takes all situation, saves me from having to be glued on the computer answering each pm and comment.
Also, most if not all components have something wrong with them so it would suit someone who's into truing wheels and re-bending frames.
So on offer:
*58cm Viscount Frame- chain stays miss-aligned not sure where exactly but rear wheel is off kilter when on (some weird old press fit bottom bracket system, comes with its crankset)
*Raleigh frame - rear chain stay obviously bent. Maybe salvageable!
*OLD TUB mavic/campag wheel
*Tiagra hub front wheel - wonky needs work
*Silver front wheel - wonky needs work
*Heaps of old front and rear wheels you can choose from
*Might have other bits and bobs on offer like old tyres and saddles/seat posts
Get in touch for deets and precise pickup location (SE13)
Its that time again when I source a Peugeot frame without a seatpost...Anyone got one knocking about?
Can collect anywhere in London, preferably south east tho.
Cheers in advance
And this 54cm 8x2 speed Viner columbus gara tubing, full campag groupset (veloce or avanti).
Great pearl red condition...
