    Had these on here a year and a month ago, still looking to get rid.

    Can post, but would prefer pick up from Stockwell Dibs if you want, but first with the cash in my hand or account gets the goods. If using paypal fees are on you..

    Frame 1: No Name Purple Track Frame

    Brought from Jos and Keith at Tour de Ville (one for the elders on the forum), originally came with a yellow paint job, and a random collection of stickers. Had it resprayed at Colourtech, in a flamboyant purple, stove enamel.
    There’s a dent at the top of the left seat stay, and the paint is chipped down that side, from a locking/falling incident, and some incidental chips around the frame and forks. Paint has worn away at the dropouts, but I was always told that the paint wasn’t the most robust.
    Have no idea what the tube set is or who built the frame, think its 531 or higher, its light and stiff (relatively) etc etc, I just know it’s lovely and had much fun riding round Herne Hill Velodrome and on the streets of london.
    Double crown fork ISN’T drilled for a brake.
    
BB - 68mm

    Comes with a Miche Supertype Seatpost 26.8mm seat post
    and Tange threaded headset
    Geometry is:

    headtube 15cm

    top tube 56cm ctc

    seat tube 56cm ctc
    rear spacing 120mm

    £150

    Too soon to imagine Lampard doing a Souness and breaking the club he was a legend at?

    Tried them on, crotch was too high. Would have shown an unseemly amount of crack if purchased. Put them back with regret.

    didn't think you would be.
    Not sure why you got rid of Darren Moore to be honest.
    Do you really need a "big" name to manage you, and get you into the Premier League?
