So, I don’t want to sell, but in order to finance a modern ride, I am putting up my 1993 Chas Roberts D.O.G.S. B.O.L.L.O.X. for sale.

Full build thread and loads of pics in my signature link below, but Spec sheet and a few pics also here. Bought via Retrobike as a frame only from Martin (Wadsy).
Frame suits a rider in the 5’7” – 5’11” span. (I’m 5’11” and Wadsy is 5’10”). Basically an 18"

Asking £1,975 plus P&P Sold for £1580

The Justin Loretz D.O.G.S. build on here went in late 2017 for £2,250, so I think my pricing is reasonable
There is a small chainsuck scratch down to the undercoat on the chainstay from Mountain Mayhem in 2017, but it is behind the chainring so doesnt show. I will send a close-up to anyone interested in buying.

Absolutely stunning example. Funny though I am thinking of selling my modern bike to fund an old one. Lol. GLWS and keep in touch with the buyer for when you buy it back.
