Thought it was time to list this properly. Finally come to terms with the fact that this is too small for me and need to find something a little more suitable. Someone take this off my hands and use it!
Text from the original advert by Triptronic-
"I have owned this for about a year and technically the third owner. The bike is totally original, i have spent quite a bit of time cleaning parts and getting them back to a nice condition.
Size is 54cm top-tube (centre to centre) and 54cm seat-tube (centre to top)
Absolutely no dents or cracks, a very few smaller scratches and a very small amount of surface rust on the frame. The rust patches are only noticeable when you are looking for them but I wanted to mention them as well.. they are there.
Quite a nice story behind this... This was purchased off the original owner a while back, he visited Woodrup to get sized up, choose colour of the frame etc. He then took it to Leedhams cycles in Leicester and had the mechanic build it up with brand new parts, including building the wheels. The same mechanic maintained this bike all the way through its life. The bike had roughly 2 years of use on the track every other weekend in the summer and was then covered in light oil and placed under a cover and stored high in a workshop since then.
Really is a nice little time warp, everything except the tyres (tubs) are original to the build. I have removed the original tyres a replaced with some brand new ones but as the wheels require some tension work have not fixed them properly yet.
This bike has never been used on the road but the original owner did have the frame drilled for front and rear brake should he ever want to use it on the road. Again, all done by the same mechanic at Leedhams.
I've given it a good clean in particularly the wheels which needed some time spending on them. The only other thing I think needs mentioning is i would recommend replacing the seatpost, it is the correct size but is a very tight fit and not easy to adjust."
Open to the idea of a swap for similar 55-56cm bike. PM me
