EDDY MERCKX PROFESSIONAL 1987 Seat Tube (ctc): 53cm Top Tube (ctc): 54cm Rear dropout width: 126mm Wheel size: 700C Seatpost size: 27.2mm Bottom bracket threads: Italian Brake drop with 700C wheel: 45mm Eddy Merckx frames are really rather nicely made and ride really nicely. This one dating from about 1987 is in exceptionally sound condition though the paint is a little tatty. Its almost certainly built from Columbus SLX tubing. 165 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Merckx-19878.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 110 GBP. 165 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Saxon-TT-tandem.jpg

RAULER 61cm c1980 Seat Tube (ctc) : 61cm (22.5in) Top Tube (ctc): 59cm (21.75in) Rear dropout width: 126mm Wheel size: Sprints or 700C (brake drop of approx 46mm) Bottom bracket threads: Italian Seatpost size: 27.0mm This c1980 Rauler frame is of really gorgeous quality - the lugs are beautifully cut out and the brazing is very clean. The frame is in excellent condition. Greg Softley (Ebay gts753) does reproduction transfers. Rauler was founded in the 1970s by Raul and Reclus Gozzi Brothers. One or both brothers worked for Colnago before starting up the Rauler marquee. It is not know just what the relationship with Ernesto was, but what is known that the name Rauler is from Raul and the first two letters of Ernesto, hence Rauler. Rauler became one of the top contract builders for Colnago and did much of the pantographing for them as well. It has been repainted not especially well but would be quite useable. There are no dents or dings I can see. 175 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Rauler-61cm.jpg

MOTOBECANE SPECIAL PRO ROAD FRAME c1983 Seat Tube (ctc): 59cm (23.25in) Top Tube (ctc): 59cm (23.25in) Rear dropout width: 126mm Wheel size: Sprints or 700C (brake drop of approx 48mm) Frame tubing: Columbus SL Seatpost size: 26.8mm Motobecane frames were ridden in the 1970s to a Tour De France win and their Team was one of the top continental pro road teams. This frame, the European equivalent of the Team Champion sold in the USA is built from Columbus SL tubing and dates from around 1977. Its in absolutely gorgeous condition with only a very few very minor marks to the paint. It comes complete with its original Laprade seatpost and Motobecane saddle and sleeved bars and stem. 145 GBP http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r77/hilarystone/Motobecane-1977-Col-SL.jpg
