I found this this morning but know little about the marque,
its badged as Schauff Rudi Altic Grand Prix. Came with Dia compe brakes,
ITM bar and stem and Campagnolo 980 mechs and an SR Apex Chainset.

What I do know
Schauff are German!
Rudi Altic was a pro rider and is now a commentator on TV (thanks Wiki)

Is the frame any good - is it worth a clean up and respray?

Dont know about the branding but:

Lots of bikes this age had crap bits on a good frame.it has nice wraparound stays, wheel adjusters and nice lugs. Prob good frame material equivalent to 501db or even 531 main tubing if you are lucky.

those Aero cranks are very light but a bit flexy

clean it up or respray and go out and have a laugh.

I'm afraid to say that it's Rudi Altig not Altic. Perhaps the end of the 'g' has worn off :wink:

He was a very good rider on road and track but he was the man that Tom Simpson beat to become World Champion. :D

A friend bought one from a Turkisch Dutch bike trader in Amsterdam for a couple tenners. It is now in Sammlung Embacher :wink: 1 of 3 ...and with an interesting history.

From what I know from Schauff, I understand that that bike is more or less the exception. Falk, a fellow OWMTBC attendent from Germany, informed me it is a major brand without such thing as a special division for custom/perfomance frames, like for example Gazelle (or Batavus) had in Holland. More gas pipe of the mill and so on.

Wow what a great collection!

www.sammlung-embacher.at/

I didnt see a schauff in the listings though - perhaps not high end enough to warrant a listing :D

I was introduced to Hans Schauff at the Cologne Show many years ago. He clicked his heels and bowed, very politely.
With his bald head, long coat and scarf, looked a lot like Fester Adams !

Nice bloke though.
