Hi to all
I've had some frames knocking about in the shed for the best part of 20 years, and I've finally got around to clearing it out! Problem is, I just don't know what a couple of them are.
This one was picked up in the BIKE UK liquidation auction in the early 90's and I assume it was a customer's bike that had been in for respray and they went bust before the customer got it back. I can't see any obvious markings on it, apart from the SPINNER dropouts on the front forks - does anyone recognise the unusual rear dropout lugs or the press-fit bottom bracket shell, the top routed cables, front mech roller mount, or Columbus MAX style ovalised tubing?
Hi res Gallery to the pics below - any help in identification and therefore valuation is very much appreciated!http://jpegbay.com/gallery/002955566-.html#1
TT - C-C = 22.5" / 57.5cm
ST - C-C = 17.5" / 44.5cm
RDO = 130MM OLN
Head Tube = 1.25"
All Top Routed Cable Mounts
Front Mech Pulley Wheel
Canti / V-Brake Bosses
Columbus Max OR style ovalised tubing (TT / DT and bottom of ST)
Twin Bottle Bosses
Circa 30mm Seatpin (not exact but close)
Have now compressed and uploaded some pics of the frame into this thread directly, as I appreciate some people won't be bothered to go and look at the hi-res gallery that is linked just above - therefore, hopefully this will assist someone to recognise those rather unusual rear dropout lugs? (I've certainly never seen any like those before!!)
