Hi everyone,

Offered for sale to CR members are a couple more frames and parts mostly from the 70s and 80s. Frames cost 75 GBP to be sent to the USA. I can take payment a number of ways - Paypal, cheque in GBP, cash sent registered post, Traveller\u2019s cheques in $ etc. Enquire for shipping costs. With the pound being low in value these are a real bargain... for US buyers. All have pictures you can check out on Photobucket.

HOLDSWORTH CYCLONE FRAME 22in c1955 Fancy Lugs Seat Tube (ctt) : 22in Top Tube (ctc): 21.75in Wheel size: Originally 27 x 1 1/4in - will also take 700C with a brake drop of approx 63mm Rear dropout width: 116mm Bottom bracket threads: English Frame number: 18809 The Cyclone model varied in its lugwork but this one of the fancier designs and when refinished properly it will look stunning. This frame is in very sound condition and belonged to Les Warner who was secretary of the CTC for many years. It is built from Reynolds 531 double butted tubing. It does need repainting - I can deliver it free of charge for the successful bidder to Argos Cycles who I consider to be one of the best frame painters in the UK. Details on Argos\u2019 prices can be found at http://www.argoscycles.com/renovation-pricelist.htm <br>The Holdsworth Cyclone was one of Holdsworth\u2019s top models and it features lovely fancy hand cut lugs. Further information on Holdsworth Cyclone can be found in the Models section - Cyclone at http://homepage.ntlworld.com/nkilgariff/ 95 GBP or near offer Pictures can be viewed at: http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Holdsworth-Cyclone-DL.jpg http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Holdsworth-Cyclone-DL-dets.jpg

MERCIER ROAD FRAME 56cm 1950s Classic French road frame Seat Tube (ctc): 56cm ctc<br>Top Tube (ctc): 56cm ctc Rear dropout width: 120mm Wheel size: 27in, Sprints or 700C (brake drop of approx 62mm) Bottom bracket threads: French Seatpost size: 26.4mm This frame is in very sound condition and is a rare example in Britain of a 1950s French road frame built almost certainly for use with a Simplex derailleur. The 26.4mm seatpost suggests strongly that it is built from good quality double-butted tubing, probably Reynolds 531 - French frames such this one were built with metric dimensioned tubing (with a 28mm rather than 28.6mm diameter seat tube) and as a result take smaller seatposts than frames built with Imperial sized tubing. 85 GBP Pictures can be seen at: http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Mercier-1950s.jpg http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Mercier-1950s-dets.jpg

STURMEY ARCHER STORY THE book on hub gears New Unused copy Offered for sale is a new and unused copy of The Sturmey Archer Story by Tony Hadland. This is the definitive work on Sturmey Archer and many other hub gears too. Anyone remotely interested in intrigue will be fascinated by how the 3-speed hub gear was not Henry Sturmey nor Archer\u2019s invention though it carries their name. It also describes in detail all Sturmey gears in a very practical manner explaining how each one works etc and has lots of extremely useful illustrations. 192 pages. 45 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Sturmey-Archer-Story.jpg
