We came across this bike in a relative's garage and wondered if anyone can shed some more light on what it is please? I'm told the frame is aluminium and it was bought second-hand in the mid-sixties.

Ultimately it is in need of a good home so I need to work out best way to find it one.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have just put a Holdworth Mystique that I am looking to shift up on Ebay. I couldnt find much to help me price it, just a few completed listings for bikes in worse condition and ones that had had a lot of work done.

Does anyone have any idea what these change hands for? Mine is up for £120 on ebay (easy to find if you wanted to see photos) at the moment but I don't know how realistic that is. Any advice would be appreciated!

I am wondering if anyone could help with a fair price estimate for my Mercian.

Would be really grateful!

Looking for a value on this if possible, classic bit of Mike Mullett track nostalgia, tempted to sell as I'm not keen on keeping wall hangings but as it was my first proper race bike bought at age 15 it is a tough decision.....

Mike Mullet 531 professional track frame (Frame no MM733), very nice tight geometry, campag dropouts. Record hubs (nos done around 100 dry miles), gp4 rims (nos pretty much immaculate), cinelli 1a stem, cinelli criterium bars, record front brake, record lever (drilled out), super record headset, record seatpost, flite titanium saddle, record track pedals, record chainset, record BB, chris king sprocket, izumi super v chain, benotto cello tape handlebar tape. No drilling for rear brake.

Most of the components that aren't nos are used but in excellent condition.

Frame was refinished 10 months ago by mercian, who checked it over then did a beautiful job refinishing. Inside tubes is anti corrosion sprayed and I also got the lugs lined as well. The silver is more metal flaked than it was when I originally picked up the bike around 1986 but otherwise is the same shade as when i bought it those 30+ years ago. There are no dents (mercian filled any small ones they found) - the only real imperfection I can see is one tiny scratch on inside of a rear stay which should polish out, otherwise all pretty much immaculate.

Tubs are modern conti's so very usuable but barely ridden.

Have had this bike for years and years and ridden it tens of thousands of miles on the road. It was previously refinished before about 15 years ago when the dented downtube was replaced by Bob Jackson but after much use it was looking tatty again so I sent it off for painting and trawled ebay to replace wheels, chainset, brakes etc back to as it was when I bought it.

On the road its light, stiff and nimble, I never used it on the track it was used for club runs TT and hill climbing.

As I said, just looking for a value, the decision to sell may come later, I hate having bikes I dont ride, but its a really tough one to part with (and Im normally not sentimental....)

Thanks :-)
