My bike is a lovingly created replica of Fignon's 1989 Super U TdF ride. She is a Dynatech 600, 2060 Reynolds tubing, and was complete with full period correct C Record Delta groupset - 28 hole BSC threaded hubs, 3 pivot Delta brakes with white bellows and wheel guides, Powergrade levers with white hoods, 27.2mm aero seat pin, band-on front mech, second generation rear mech, BSC threaded headset, BSC threaded 111mm bottom bracket, 175mm crankset, correct pearl-white cable outers for both brakes and rear mech. Other kit is Simplex Retrofriction shifters, Selle Italia Turbo black leather saddle with WCS stripes, 6 speed SunTour Winner Pro freewheel, ITM black 135mm stem (possibly bent in the headtube), Raleigh-branded ITM handlebars, first generation TIME Titan Magnesium Pro Equipe pedals, Specialites TA alloy bottle cages, Benotto tricolour handlebar tape, Wolber aero Profil 20mm tub rims, Schwalbe Milano tubs.
A friend has suggested about £2,000 to put such a bike together again - I would guess that she has cost me about £1,500, and could go through my eBay history to confirm this - what do you think I should be claiming for from the insurance company?
I can't load a picture for some reason, I'll try to add one tomorrow
Damn! I am sorry to hear about your accident! Glad you survived and making a recovery.
Reading through your spec list yes I think it would cost circa £1500 - £2000 to rebuild the bike again.
My business (Stallion Cycles Ltd) specialises in used, quality racing bikes. I've never offered a valuation for insurance purposes before but if you think I can be of help send me a pm and I'll do whatever I can.
