to build a bike up from nice parts is always expensive, so the reverse is also true...if you decided at some point to sell it, you may or may not get your money back on evilbay, but the bike parted out and sold would...

Anyone any ideas on the Carlton Corsair a few posts up? Mate reckons any 531 tubed frame alone should be £100 plus, wondering what difference the full, mostly original, parts would make to it.

A tattier looking one was on for £90 back in early 2011 which I have only just found by searching a bit differently.

Post up a picture and I'll give you an idea. The £100'ish for a 531 frame is fairly accurate I'd say....

thanks, will try to remember to take a pic tonight (then work out how to post them, is it just 'add an attachment'?)

Hey Neil. I was honestly just about to reply to your pm, anyway I'll give you my opinion here now you've made the post.

The frame is an absolute beauty and under all that crud doesn't look to be in too bad a condition. Value wise I'd but it around the £200 mark.

I really like it.

Hi

I have a Claud Butler, does anyone have any info on it.
I Had the frame powder coated at my former works about 15 years ago, the bloke that did it put two layers on and I cannot make the frame numbers out.

Thanks Mark

Hi guys,

I hope this is the most apprpriate forum but if not then please advise!

I have been entasked with selling my other halfs old racer which has been untouched for the best part of 20 years.

She still has the original manual and proof of purchase date of 1986 although guessing it's not that year model. I haven't a clue about older/retro bikes let alone racers so some advice would be great.

Guessing it is desirable as it has semi-horizontal dropouts for the SS conversion fraternity and it has a retro appeal and mudguards for the winter project bike guys.

Top tube - 57cm CtoC
Seat tube - 53cm CtoT

Very good condition, few scuffs but apart from that looks practically unused. Shiny shiny shiny! Is Elswick-Falcon a good old British brand?

What would be a fair price here or if it doesn't go here or SingleTrackWorld then e-bay?

Thanks in advance

Chris
