1988 Bromwich Cyclone

Hand made and fully fillet brazed by Jim McIlwaine 1988.

16" seat tube (measured middle of bb to top of top tube)
19" seat tube (measured middle of bb to top of seat tube)
21" effective top tube (measured horizontally centre seat tube to centre headset)
28" Approx standover height at lowest point with the tyres pumped up.

I'm looking for £490 for this very lovely bike which includes the rare Magura brake levers and fillet brazed stem hand made by Paul Saddof (Rock Lobster)

XT M730, Mavic Paris Dakar wheels etc.

This bike rides like a dream. It's literally the best bike I've ever owned bar none, also reasonably high head tube and stem coupled with the short-ish top tube makes for a great bike if your back is a little stiff like mine. This bike took me ages to find but unfortunately I'm going through a divorce which forces this sale. Really hope this bike goes to a good home and no regrets.

Pics etc here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=391110

Ideally Oxford pick up.

Joe

Sad to hear you're selling this lovely bike. Deserves a bump!

Good luck with selling and the divorce! :O :(

Ta!

Thanks, not too acrimonious so far, long may it last.

I’ll probably accept £550 for this bike.

Best wishes all!
