I saw one on ebay recently but the asking price (40 or 50 gbp) was a bit high for me. I'd guess around 30 gbp would be reasonable, but then again these are extremely rare and beautiful items.

Sorry for the crappy photo. I just took all the bikes out of the garage, took a photo, and put them all back again, to find my photo was out of focus. *sigh*.

Alpinestars ASR140. Alivio derailleurs and cranks (not the exploding ones!) with Acera-X hubs (I think, the front one might be Alivio), the shifters are cheap friction thumb shifters. FSA bars and Ridgeback stem. Also have a spare straight seatpost.

Is it worth anything, or should I strip it down and chuck in the loft in case I want to revisit it?

EDIT: Size is 22" but with a short top tube, 58cm c-c IIRC.

Yeah, I'd thought that myself when pondering whether to buy one. I want a brake booster to actually use, though, and I'd hate so see such a wonderful piece of kit get damaged.

Hi to all

I've had this frame 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 it is.

It 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

Specs are:

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)

:?

You might be best posting in the main area for identification, then when you know what it is post in here for a valuation.
