Hi everyone,

Offered to CR members are some interesting frames and some more parts from several different eras...

I can take payment a number of ways - Paypal or cheque in GBP, cash sent registered post, Traveller\u2019s cheques in $, direct bank transfer within the UK or European Iban bank transfer. I will always combine shipping in order to reduce costs.

Frames cost 80 GBP to ship to the USA, 100 GBP to ship to Australia/New Zealand and 11 GBP within the UK.

With the pound being still quite low in value these are a real bargain... for US and European buyers. Paypal is quoting 1.6$ to 1 GBP.

HANNINGTON CHILD\u2019S TRAILERCYCLE This is a truly lovely child\u2019s trailercycle built probably in the 1960s - it is far superior to the cheap modern ones which attach to the seatpost. The lower fitting with the hitch vertically over the rear wheel on a purpose built rack means that the towing bike does not get tugged in anything like the same manner as the cheap child trailercucles. Isla Rowntree and Burley copied this design when they built child trailercycles in the 1990s because it was simply the best design...The seat tube is 14in long on the trailercycle - this is short enough for most 6-7 year olds with the short cranks - the cranks can be changed as the child gets older and its suitable up to about 9 to 10 years old. 85 GBP Shipping within the UK will be 11 GBP and to the USA 90 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Hannington-trailercycle.jpg

ELLIS CHAMPION c1934 Seat Tube (ctt): 21in Top Tube (ctc): 21.5in Rear dropout width: 110mm Wheel size: 26 x 1 1/4in Seatpost size: 27.2mm Bottom bracket threads: English Ellis Champion was a very established lightweight builder (claimed in their catalues to be established in 1897) that finally closed its doors in the early 1960s always in Fulham, south-west London. Over the last 25 years I have had about half a dozen Ellis Champions through my hands - all have impressed with the standard of workmanship and attention to detail. This frame is quite sound though at present looks awful. The attention to detail can however be seen - the slightly curved seatstay bridge, the neat fork crown cutouts and the carefully cut lugs. Most older Ellis frames have round bladed forks as here. This frame does obviously need repainting. It has never been drilled for brakes so presumably was fitted with Resilion cantilevers originally. 45 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Ellis-Champion.jpg

JACK HATELEY 1954 Seat Tube (ctt): 24in Top Tube (ctc): 22.5in Rear dropout width: 115mm Wheel size: probably sprints will also just accomodate 27s, brake drop with sprints/700C is 55mm Seatpost size: 27.0mm Bottom bracket threads: English Jack Hately\u2019s shop was in Wolverhampton and he was an early supporter of the BLRC (British League of Racing Cyclists). This is a very nice example of his work - his frames tended to be a little more flamboyant than Stallards - this one is in very sound condition and features Cyclo Benelux rear dropouts and a single down tube lever boss. A rod operated front derailleur was probably used in conjunction with a Cyclo Benelux rear gear. This will make a great project. 55 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/hateley.jpg

SAXON TWIN-TUBE TANDEM c1938 Saxon are best known for their twin seat tube solo bicycles but the design was first used in 1937 to make a short wheelbase tandem frame. The TT tandem frames were produced in relatively small quantities up until WWII. This frame has at some time been \u2018modernised\u2019 with a down tube gear lever boss and Mafac cantilever brakes. It also sports transfers from apparently touring in the Alps... I think it has 21in seat tubes front and rear but will take proper measurements for anybody seriously interested. It will make a superb project which will be very unusual. Shipping to the USA will be 100 GBP. 195 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Saxon-TT-tandem.jpg

MERCIAN SUPERLIGHT 1962 Seat Tube (ctc):57.5cm (22.75in) Top Tube (ctc): 57cm (22.5in) Rear dropout width: 120mm Wheel size: 700C Frame tubing: Reynolds 531 DB Brake drop with 700C/Sprint wheel: 50mm Bottom bracket threads: English This is a nice early Mercian Superlight frame from 1962 built for sprints/tubs but ideal for use with 700C with a 50mm brake drop. The Superlight was one of Mercian\u2019s top models incorporating their distinctive fastback seat cluster and very abbreviated Nervex lugs. This one has had a period repaint - there are a few traces of light piting showing on the chainstays near the BB shell but seems pretty much perfect elsewhere. The chrome is very good/excellent with only one or two traces of corrosion - it is perfectly useable. reduced to 245 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Mercian-Superlight-1962.jpg

RALEIGH ILKESTON TIME TRIAL SPECIAL FRAME 1978 Seat Tube (ctt): 56cm Top Tube (ctc): 56cm Rear dropout width: 126mm Brake drop with 700C wheels: 50/44mm Tubing: Reynolds 753 metric Frame number SB1912 Seatpost size: 27.0mm This was made at the Raleigh Ilkeston plant under the direct supervision of Gerald O\u2019Donovan. Mike Mullett was the foreman in the framebuilding shop when this was built. There are some gorgeous touches such as the slotted bottom bracket and oversize seatstay cap. It is designed for use use with hex nut fitting brakes. The frame appears to be very sound with no dents. It is one of the comparitively rare Time Trial Special frames with drilled and reinforced vertical dropouts -and is built from the lighest version of 753 - the bare frame weighs just 1550g! It has had bottle cage bosses added. In autumn 1974 Raleigh established a specialist workshop (SBDU) capable of frame building to the very highest standards at Ilkeston in Derbyshire. Frames were built for the Ti-Raleigh continental pro team from the very beginning. They produced the only British frame to ever win the Tour de France (Joop Zoetemelk, 1980). The unit worked with Reynolds in developing Reynolds 753 and the first frames were tested by the Ti-Raleigh team in 1974. Genuine Ilkeston frames can be identified by frame numbers with 1 to approx 9500, prefixed SB. For a company as large as Raleigh, the SBDU was quite an unusual operation. Its production capacity was modest \u2013 at a maximum only about 1000 frames or so a year from about four framebuilders. SBDU frames were mostly built in stock designs except for the actual team frames. Its a real bargain at 195 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Raleigh-TT-SB1912.jpg
