I picked this up from the original owner, it's a 531 frame and fork with Campy dropouts and pantographed stays. Apparently he bought it as a frameset around 1980. It's a bit banged up but straight, no dents or cracks. The BB is pretty strange.

The BB looks rather like a Royce. Titanium spindle?

That's another specialist tool required (the joys of proprietary components).

Am I missing something? Where does Tony Hoar come into this? Not heard of CBS before, is it a Canadian brand that TH was involved with?

Apparently Hoar used CBS (Canadian Bicycle Specialists) frames on his bikes. And yes, none of my BB tools fit that unit.

Hammer and punch will get it out. Or a good masonary nail if you cant get a punch in there

Will a Canadian frame have a right or left hand thread on the fixed cup side?
