Not aluminium - apart from possibly the forks. Steel lugged frame which looks older than the dates you have mentioned. The rear gear is fitted completely wrongly - does it actually work? None of the components are particularly rare although the handlebars are a very good example of engraved GB which are quite desirable. At a jumble it would probably go for £75 - £100 at the very most but on the 'net - ??

Yes, I've ridden it. It's not easy to ride compared to a modern day bike, but it does work.

Thanks for the estimate, I guess we won't be retiring just yet then. I've told him to take it to Fred Williams in Wolverhampton and ask them if they want to buy it for their shop wall.

Dear Friends,

Any idea how much a pair of c record downtube indexed shifters are worth? The ones with the micro adjust?

http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=c+reco ... 1,s:0,i:67

Synchro 2 I think they're called.

Also a record 9 speed chainset? A record rear mech 9 speed? Record Carbon BB?

Thank you kindly for all the advice,

Laurence

Apologies to deluge you all, I was also wondering about a record aheadset for one inch forks, in pretty much perfect nick but without the top cap or star nut.

I reckon for a mint pair of levers 'value wise' would be about £40 - £60.

After a bit of info and a quick estimate on this, if anyone can shed some light:

Belgian Flanders road bike.
Size:
seattube 55 cm c-t
toptube 55 cm c-c

The parts used to build up this nice bike are a mix of Shimano parts:
Shimano 600: brakeset (calipers/levers)
Shimano Dura Ace: frontderailleur and rearderailleur
Shimano 105: crankset and hubs. The wheelset has mavic rims.
This Flanders is in an excellent condition, hardly signs of use, looks like new

Unsure of tubing

pics incoming

150-175 on the flanders I would imagine, roughly speaking. That would be a fair price I think. Depends greatly on the tubing of the bike.

Yeah tubing is a big if, gonna try and get a weight for the bike to see if that's any indication. Also been informed it's got Fir rims but I've never heard of them

Are the drop outs campag? What's the seatpost size? That's a better indicator than weight, unless you just weigh the frame and forks.
