This is a fantastic example of a rare Bernard Carre frame in a really striking red to pink ombre.The frame is in wonderful condition with only a few scratches that you would expect from something of this age.The frame was overhauled by the previous owner who then fitted it out with a Shimano Tricolour 600 set up on it. New cables, new bar tape and a new Selle Italia Turbo saddle along with new tyres and a Campagnolo seat post.The wheels are a modern 11 speed with some spacers in them and there is clearance for up to 28mm with mudguards if you wanted to size them up.It runs beautifully, shifts smooth, is fast and very comfortable to ride. Unfortunately it is just a tad on the small size for me and so just hasn't been practical for me to ride it. It means that it has done almost no miles since it was overhauled and is still running super smooth.As mentioned it is a 58cm frame so would be perfect for someone who is anywhere around the 6ft mark. It has been kept inside for the past few months so there are no issues with water getting into the bike.It is a really lovely thing and i am disappointed to have to get rid of it - but would much rather it went to a home where it is being ridden rather than just being stared at!Would prefer collection of the bike - I am in NW5, but can get around London easily if that helps. Delivery can be organised too - so let's cross that bridge when we get to it!Thanks,Mark.
