This is one of those projects I’ve not got around to sorting.
It’s a custom made frame, silver brazed using Columbus tubing and same for the forks. It’s dimensions are 22 top tube, 23.5 seat tube. Has fast back seat stays and adjusters on the dropouts.
When I got it it had a seized seat post, I’ve sorted that and put another post in there, it’s just sat since.
Has a Shimano 600 groupset, the cranks, B.B, headset, pedals, gears and brakes are all 600 apart from the levers, which are dia compe. Bars are Cinelli criterium and the stem is Cinelli with the oval logo. Has a concor saddle. Wheels are weinnman rims with stainless spokes and maillard hubs, fairly old gatorskin tyres but usable.
All in all it’s a nice quality bike, only thing is needs is a spoke in the rear wheel to be rideable.
The paintwork is flakey, all it needs to be looking really good is new paint (or ride as is of course, still looks purposeful).
The paint has fallen off in lots of places and surface rust has appeared. It’s all solid and no dents that I have found. I think it was just thin paint from the start. As the paint has gone in places you can see the braze is silver.
It looks as though it hasn’t had much use, mechanically there is little wear.
As is you could ride it home and is being sold as such.
I was going to swap out the wheels and respray the frame but it’s not likely to happen soon and I’m having a clear out.
This could be a pretty awesome old bike, has all the right bits just needs a weekends work.
£200, I’m in Brighton, can bring to the train station if it helps.
