Hi I'm Steve a newish member from east Yorkshire
I have quite a few unidentified bikes.. so i may be a bit of a nuisance
I have just bought an Argos decaled part complete frame
The frame numbers is on the rear dropout it's 78110
So I assume it's a 78. All the parts on it are campag. Brakes and hubs look to be the right era
There's a refinished Columbus sticker on it, in line with an Argos re spray.
The frame has a few distinguishing features. The forks have a spade, club, heart and diamond on the inside of both fork legs where the fork crown extends down the inside of each fork leg.
The seat stays are in the fast back style but with a separate post clamp..
I'll get some pics up soon if needed
Thanks in advance
Steve

Sometimes retrobike stops the posting of photos and links until you have 5 posts, something to do with anti spam. I used to drink in the Wheatsheaf which I think was in Anlaby, my dad worked for Anlaby Caravans. Small world lol.

I would have liked to attend. But I'm away that weekend with one of my other hobbies.. ... home made hi fi.. it's been booked and paid for. So there's no pulling out.
I'm after a pair or a rear 700c tandem wheels so quite disappointed I'm not able to attend
Thanks for the heads up..

And a few more pics.
The frame number on the fork stem is stamped on a filed flat area.
The bike came with campag large flange hubs with the flat type of skewer levers and the campag brakes are from the same era
I assume it a good quality frame. The drop outs are campagnolo are are chromed, frame number is 78110 which I think would be made by a reasonably busy builder..
Any help would be appreciated...
