This is the beginning of a possible large scale sale of around half my retro collection. Based in Nottingham and really do want to avoid postage, I work as a mobile cycle mechanic so can happily 'deliver goods to customer' within 'reasonable distance'... I've got a gent currently with an offer talking to me but wanting to gauge interest here too. It cost me a fortune to build (frameset upwards), a sum that i'll never expect to get back, but want to try and recover as much back out of it as I can.

Asking price £700.00.

D-reg Raleigh Titanium Torus XT Frame. Seat tube 16" c-c, toptube 22" c-c.
Original undamaged Ti Trimel forks with original machined stems and straight Ti bar (uncut)
Controltech Control Stix bar ends, logo has wear but no scrapes to these (about as clean as used barends get)
ATI Tomac grips (nos when fitted)
Original Kally seatpost
Vuelta Bassano Saddle
Modern no-name seat collar (selected as matches the style of stems very well).
Shimano XT M737 full groupset, hardly use, STis were NOS, Modern Shimano 8-speed rear cassette with chain.
Hope purple lightweight front hub
Campagnolo Atek silver rims, purple alloy nipples
Continental folding tyres (period correct, NOS when fitted)
Oddyssey Svelt Titanium skewers

Since building this has had just 3 rides and has since remained a 'garage queen', in honesty it's racey slammed geometry doesn't suit me very well :(.

No dents, dings or structural damage, a paint scrape on underside of lower downtube, some light chainstuck and few small chips - note they are clear rubber cable doughnuts on toptube the pics, not dinks.

Any questions just PM me please and i'll be sure to get back to you, high-res images can be sent via email at request.

Tom

16" c-c = 18" c-t = Raleigh measurement. Lovely bike. If it was a 16" I'd have it, it ticks all the right boxes for me

8) nice

Had and sold 3 torus frames, all for around the £300 mark. The frame with the forks should get around the asking price, to get the rest of the kit with it is a great deal imo.

GLWS.

I think you need to read the rules again, there are no "offers over" allowed on here. If you're selling it for £700 that's what you should be accepting, else put it on eBay.

2. No "offers over" or "best offer above" adverts allowed. If you want an auction go to http://www.ebay.co.uk and pay their fees.

Honestly, I would have been interested, but discounted it because of the 'offers over'.
