Latest list of an English touring frame and other parts for sale to CR members before or after they have been to Ebay. Please ask for photos if you're interested. I can deliver some items for a nominal cost to the Cirque. A frame at present costs $120 to send to the USA.

If you have trouble getting the picture links to work make sure you get or paste in the whole link as some of you I know are having trouble with lines not wrapping properly.

All items are priced in $. Shipping will be extra charged at cost. Payment can be made in cash with dollars or by money order in Pounds sterling ($1.70 to 1 GBP). American Express Travellers cheques in $ are also fine. I can take PayPal but I have to charge 5% extra to cover what my bank charges me.

F E DUNNING TOURING FRAME 22in (CTT) with 22 1/4in top tube CTC). 18 1/4in chainstays. Dunning was an English framebuilder from Willsden in North London. The frame has a custom tubular rear rack. The head lugs are really rather pretty and unusual and what appears to be a stand mount is brazed between the chainstays in front of the chainstay bridge. A fitting for a Cyclo Standard rear derailleur is brazed onto the right hand chainstay as well as mounts for Mafac cantilever brakes. Original transfers in very good condition. It¹s quite difficult to date this frame but I would guess early to mid 50s. Totally unique. $195 Pics on request

ROYCE SEALED BEARING LARGE FLANGE HUBS excellent condition 32/32H. These particular hubs date from the 1980s though are practically identical in design to the ones manufactured today. They feature Reynolds 531 axles and the very best in Japanese sealed cartridge bearings. These hubs would help to build the most wonderful pair of wheels for an 80s machine; they are 126mm over the rear locknuts and are for a six-speed freewheel. Royce are a small absolutely top notch British cycle components company that began in the early 1980s. The finish and the detailing is absolutely exquisite - finer than anything from Campagnolo. $75 See pics at http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1083790475306_Royce_large_flange _hubs.jpg

It bolts to the rear dropout. $45 See pics at http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1086100478312_Huret_wire_deraill eur.jpg
