Frame from Motobecanne's flagship model the C5 from 1979/80. Full Columbus tubing and size 57cm centre to centre

This frame is in extremely good condition with original paint and stickers. A few marks here and there, but I don't think it has done many miles. Takes a Swiss BB, comes with the fixed cup
£70 +post

Does it have recessed brake holes, for allen key brakes?
And whats the top tube length, centre to centre?
Finally - not sure I've heard of a Swiss BB - are you sure? Is the headset thread English?
Cheers

Swiss BBs really are a thing.

Apparently, they have the same thread as a French BB but the fixed cup is left threaded for reliability.

Yep that's it fixed cup is LH thread other side is standard French
. Headset is Fench. The top tube is 57cm centre to centre. Brake holes are regular type. I don't know what allen key brake fitments look like?


Willing to sell the frame seperately
