Hmmm, not sure if I'm posting in the right thread here as it's in the MTB section but does seem to have some roadies in it. I've got some storage space issues, which are almost sorted, but I really am trying to decide what to do with my Claud Butler Dalesman which I resotred earlier this year. It's supposed to be a contemporary sort-out rather than a faithful restoration. Can't decide whether to keep it and ride as is, singlespeed it, or sell it.
Anyway, spec is as follows:
Frame/fork-1980s Claud Butler Dalesman, 531ST frame, stays and fork. Resprayed 2008, 531 graphics and vinyl lettering. Lugged, Campag adjustable dropouts, mudguard/rear rack braze ons, 3 sets of bottle bosses
Wheels-Rigida 27", eyeletted, ss double butted spokes on Maillard wide flange QR hubs, complete with "hand built by Frank Shaw Camberley" on them. Brand new Conti tubes and Ultra Sport 27x1 tyres
Shimano 105 f/r mechs, 7 speed indexed, SR double chainring, new cables and outers, sealed BB
Shimano 105 dual pivot brakes and levers, new cables and outers
SR Micro adjustable fluted ally seatpost, Cinelli bars and stem, Charge Spoon seat and matching chipper and U Bend bar tape
Picture here...thanks in advance!
