I saw the bike the last time I visited Paul a month or so ago. It's a classic Ron Cooper in really nice condition. Unfortunately it's too big for me or I would have bought it myself.
I've purchased a number of bikes from Paul B. and I've been satisfied with all the transactions.

The bike is an hour north of the City, so I haven't seen it, fortunately the add has good information and good pictures. It's to small for me, but also being of British decent I have a little soft spot for it.

> Up for sale is a very clean Ron Cooper built in 1974 with a full Campagnolo NR group. The frame is Reynolds 531 DB. Brakes are the early std reach flat q/r model. The frame is straight with no dings. and shows few miles. It's a 59 c/c with 57 tt. The paint has the fine crizelling of the clear cost and some chips out of the decals. A friend in Seattle had this for years, but didn't ride it much. The saddle is a well broken in Brooks B-17 with bag loops. This bike has the early imperial standard profile fork blades and Ron's hand domes dropout tube ends. I've known Ron Cooper personally since 1973 and have two of his frames in my size.
