This is the project that I alluded to on my introduction.
Which was Malcolm Elliot's Reynolds 753 lo-pro that Raleigh (or more correctly Gerald O'Donovan - witness the sticker at the top of the seat tube) made for his unsuccessful attempt at the World hour record.
This got me thinking.......could I find an 'old skool' lo-pro frame, tidy it up, and build it up as a modern-ish twist on a classic lo-pro TT bike in a singlespeed variant?
just came across this thread,and malcome elliot doing the world hour record???? really, is that the same malcome elliot ,sprinter, veulta points jersey winner and all round night club king ?
thinking of malc doing the hour is a joke,it is probably the hardest event in cycling,and the people who have held it are real heavy weight,s in the cycling world. i am not saying elliot was not gifted,but all the book,s i have read about coppi ,anquetil and merckx have said it is hell.with merckx saying the last 20 mins are probably the hardest ever on a bike
all this makes me think the story about your frame is utter crap
