Subject: [CR]English Frame "unknown" for Sale

O.K. List,

Since no one ventured a guess on this frame after you all did so well on my first “unknown” bike, I offer her for sale as an orphan. Please go here to see the pictures:


The frame in question was found as a whole bike from the “Aladdin’s Cave” Group which was a garage full of English bikes I recently purchased "for one money" as we say back on the right coast.

I relieved this little beauty of most of her parts and now youse guys get to fight over the rest!

Here she is:


Seat tube: 55 cm. ctr to ctr. (21 ½ inches)

Top tube: 56.5 cm. ctr to ctr. (22 ¼)

Chain stay: 44 cm. (17 ¼ inches)

English threads

She looks to be a well built frame made of Reynolds 531 double butted through out with Prugnat cut out lugs and Campagnolo 1010 drop outs front and rear. The adjuster screws work fine.

I have left the Campagnolo Super Record headset (Excellent condition; very smooth and looks good) in place (for now) as is also an Italian sealed bottom bracket axle and cups (“F.T.” brand “Made in Bologna”; looks to be very nice stuff! Looks like O.M.A.S. quality). =09 Take the whole thing for $265.00!

Or I'll keep the headset and you send me $190.00 for the frame.

Please take a look at the photos:


Paint is a dark anthracite metallic; very shinny but she has some very minor scratches in two spots (where the down tube shifter clamp goes and on the down tube where the cable guide goes ( there is some hard plastic protector “under” where the clamp would go there that needs to be scraped off). There is also a really super tiny dent on the seat tube about two inches above the bottom bracket. It’s like an eighth of an inch long and almost nothing deep. But it’s there and now you know. It affects nothing. I never noticed it till I took the bike apart.

I’m not good enough to even attempt to get it on “film”.

Also included is a Silca frame fit black pump with a Campagnolo head with BLUE FEET! Blue feet are priceless; their made of unobtanium!

Actual shipping where ever via Fed Ex ground (seems the less expensive way to go these days) for cost. Packing is included.


Payment via cash, personal check, U.S. Postal money order and PayPal.
