    Phil Wood - double fixed, high flange, beautiful condition still silky smooth. Velocity Deep V machined front rim, unmachined rear. One tiny dint in side or rear rim, and another small one on the edge. No issues caused with either. (If i can find my chainwhip in time the sprockets will come off)

    Nitto B123 Cromo NJS 38cm - Some corrosion under where the grips were

    Shimano 600ax stem 90mm - one of the most beautiful stems ever IMO, hidden bolt design, top cap in place, gentle marking, overall good used condition.

    Dura Ace track chainset - 1st gen 7100 series fluted cranks, 170mm length, 130BCD, good condition, all tapers and threads good. comes with Specialities TA Alize track chainring again good condition (will check teeth, maybe 48t)

    Been in storage for years, so finally got round to moving it on - Beautiful champagne colour Chas Roberts track frame. 105 headset and BB included, both in great condition.

    Originally bought from an old guy in Milton Keynes about 15yrs ago. Then used around town for a few years before being mothballed. Paint is plenty chipped and scratched - under TT patch has worn, as is behind ST from rear tyre, various other chips. There is the usual dint in the TT from careless handlebars, another tiny one the topside too, pics for ref.

    Some ugly chrome forks installed, as the original ones whilst drilled I think weren't designed for a brake and I also reckon are bent - will include them anyway. Bontrager seatpost is scratched badly from being removed, will include too.

    ST 55cm ctc
    TT 56cm ctc
    110 rear spacing

    Anymore info or more pics, just ask.

    £400 collected E9

    Everything else from original build is available separately:
    Phil Wood on Deep V's
    Shimano 600 stem
    Nitto B123 bars
    Dura Ace track cranks

    Somewhat reluctantly decided to sell my Fred Williams road bike. Sadly I've forgotten what year or tubing it is, but it looked to have been raced previously when I got it about 15years odd ago.

    Been various iterations over the years, but currently set-up with mish-mash of Campag mirage 8speed groupset. Lovely Cinelli stem, ambrosio bars. yellow open pro rim on campag hubs - some wear to rims and hubs could do with a proper service, they spin well, just a touch rumbly. Red Turbo saddle, with scuffs. Headset, buttery smooth, never touched, campag beaut.

    Recently had new pads, MKS sylvan pedals clips and straps. inline seatpost. Spa Cycles compact chainset and new BB. Newish bar tape.

    Paint has def seen better days, plenty of chips and scratches, but still very vibrant red and no dents or cracks.

    Seattube 57cm ctc
    Top tube 56cm ctc
    Stem 110mm

    Any questions, just ask. Plenty more pics too.
    It really is a lovely ride, I will miss it, but need to cull the fleet and have got something else in mind.

    £475 - collected E9

    Will be happy to split if no one wants full bike. Also a couple of other bikes n bits coming up for sale shortly - Roberts track frame, phil wood SS wheels, '89 Kona Lava Dome. Just got to clean them up and take some pics.
