I have sorted out some more bits and pieces. All items are priced in $. Postage will be extra charged at cost. Enquire for actual cost if you like before deciding. Payment can be made in cash with dollars or by money order in Pounds sterling ($1.40 to 1 pound sterling). American Express Travellers cheques are also fine. Regards Hilary Stone

1953 R O Harrison 23in frame with 23in top tube. Almost certainly their Continental Superb model this features really beautiful hand cut cast lugs. They are not as intricate as the most fancy lugs from Hetchins but have a surety of line just like the best Ephgrave. R O Harrison was a framebuilder first at Selbachs before setting up on his own in 1933. He continued well into the 50s - probably early 60s and was very highly rated. This particular frame has been overpainted by hand but judicious removal has revealed the R O Harrison transfers together with Reynolds 531 transfers. It needs a complete repaint (which I can arrange at cost through Argos if required). Complete with a slightly rusty Brampton Alatet headset and a Bayliss Wiley bottom bracket. The correct style of transfers are available. Pictures of the lugwork can be emailed. $220

Camapagnolo Valentino Front derailleur NOS (I think it may be a Super Valentino) Chrome cage Perfect $55

Zeus Criterium Chainset - NOS RH 170mm crank with 52/40T chainrings, used LH crank with slight damage to taper and light abrasions. Excellent for spares or perfect if you have a matching LH crank $45

Trivelox rear derailleur probably from 1937-39 for conventional 3-speed freewheel. NOS. Perfect condition. $35

Huret Competition Rear derailleur c1950­53 Light rust pitting on arm and missing dropout fastening bolt. But complete with actuating toggle chain. No markings but looks like 4-speed or possibly 5-speed. Pulleys are good. $40
