SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD
so long time no post, but here goes, due to on going medical rubbish its still unlikely that i'll be riding anytime soon, this bike has served me well but sat gathering dust for at least the last two years if not longer. it was my daily commuter/all round bike.
I'm told its a 1950's track frame and forks, it was sold to me as that
When i had the seat bolt fixed at Neil Orrell in Manchester he agreed that the lugs where Nervex from the 50's but couldn't comment on what the tubes where made from but it was good stuff. Also its worth noting that at somepoint someone has maybe moved the seat-stays as the welding on them is different to the rest of the bike.
I rubbed the frame down and painted it with hammerite a while back as the frame paint job was awful. when i did this i didn't find a makers mark what so ever in any of the obvious locations so i have no idea who made this frame, Neil said its possible it was a apprentice/practice frame, but one that been nicely built.
the bike comes as is, the headseat is loose but other then that it rides well, ( maybe i just suck at headsets ) and was serviced about a year ago when i thought i might be able to ride it,
TT is 22 inches ST is 21 inches
the wheels are Halo aerorage, still smooth and straight after 100's of miles
the rear brake is dia compe brs 101 clamp on ( there are no brake mounts )
the Bb is a cheep Shimano sealed unit
the crank is mostly a sugino messenger but the silver arm is just a sugino cheep silver arm
the headset is swan super deluxe, little bit chewed up, maybe needs replacing.
the rest of the parts are just cheep ones to complete the bike, nothing special.
