RALEIGH PROFESSIONAL ROAD BIKE 21.5in (CTT) 1973 Original Equipment Top tube length 21.5in (ctc). No original paint but excellent chrome. Huret Jubilee gears front and rear with correct shift levers. Nervar Star chainset with 170mm cranks and 53/42 chainrings, Campag Record road pedals, Campag NR seatpin, no saddle, Weinmann 500 brakeset, Campag Large flange hubs with non-matching sprint rims, 5-speed Regina freewheel. This spec differs from the catalogue but it must be remembered that there were widespread component shortages in 1973 and 1974 and Raleigh fitted almost anything they could get. Frame appears to be in excellent condition except overpainted in red and one tiny, tiny dent on the top tube. Typical Pro fastback stays and fully sloping crown. It would seem a shame to part this bike out. $375 http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Raleigh_Pro_1973_transmissi.jpg http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Raleigh_Pro_1973.jpg ttp://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Raleigh_Professional_73_det.jpg

TOM CROWTHER ROAD FRAME 21in (CTT) 1970s 21 in Top tube (ctc) with 120mm rear ends. Beautiful original paintwork which has some marks but is more than good enough to save. Tom Crowther was one of the original partners in Mercian before selling out and going on his own around 1965. This frame has exquisitely filed single point lugs almost certainly Prugnat and with Campag vertical dropouts. Fully sloping Cinelli type crown with unusually Reynolds transfer applied to the fork crown slope. Half-chrome forks and rear stays with chrome in excellent condition. A stunning looking frame. $295 http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Tom_Crowther_frame.jpg http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Tom_Crowther_details.jpg

GAZELLE CHAMPION MONDIAL AA 54cm (CTC) Middle/late 1970s 54cm Top tube (ctc) with 125mm rear ends. Good, in my opinion saveable original paintwork. Has the funky strange shaped brake bridge. Half chrome fork blades and stays with chrome fork crown. Chrome is very good but has some marks. Gold/brown colour with black transfers, one set of bottle cage bosses and no other braze-ons. Transfers from two Dutch cycle shops adorn the frame but these can easily be removed if needed. Head badge is missing. $145 http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Gazelle_Champion_Mondial_AA.jpg http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/2006/11/20/Gazelle_Champion_Modial_det.jpg

DAVE LLOYD 25.25in (CTT) TIME TRIAL FRAME Wonderful lugless Brazing combined with Dave\u2019s trademark wishbone rear stays. It is extensively chrome plated and is finished in a blue mauve fade which is also very common on Dave Lloyd\u2019s frames. This frame is built to take 26in wheels front and rear and coming with two 26in wheels with later, much more modern and off-topic Zipp carbon-fibre rims, rear hub is Dura-Ace and front hub is Mavic which is a the narrow one designed specifically by them for low-pro type applications. There are a number of good spare tubulars included. This frame is extremely eye-catching and beautiful. $375
