Lovely old steel frame racer with some fantastic components that are worth £150+ by themselves:
- Gatorskin tyres in great condition, worth £50
- Weinmann type 500 GOLD brake levers (these sell for c.£60 alone! - e.g. see Ebay item #131938863190)
- NEW, professional fitted brake cables
- NEW, professionally fitted rear wheel, worth £50
- NEW bar tape
Overall condition is OK for age. Great components - rides ok but needs a little work on the gears to get it running really smoothly again. At the moment I'm not sure if it shifts gear - I don't try and just treat it as single speed.
Paint is ok – this is a nice metallic green. But there is some surface rust particularly on the top tube - as the pics show.
The bike size - 57 cm frame centre to centre, 58.5cm centre to top, with top tube 59cm centre to centre and 27” wheels – I would say suitable for a person 5’ 9” – 6.1" tall. I'm 6ft and this bike fits me well.
Brake calipers are nice Weinmann 730 /810’s.
10 Speed Sachs Huret gears, with a nice looking Silstar Crank.
