Offering Remy Course kit

Early/mid 70s frame by Remy of Ossendrecht, Holland

Handcrafted by masterbuilder with great reputation Marten van der Bergh. It is a fine frame. Construction is light. Even with parts fitted it feels light.

Remys found their way to several well known riders, among them Hennie Kuiper, Jo de Roo and Jan Janssen.

Comes with:
- Nuovo Record headset
- Nuovo Record bottom bracket
- Nuovo Record shifters
- Nuovo Record front mech
- Zeus clamp on cable guide

Condition:
It is not a minty frame, hence the attractive pricepoint. The frame is entirely chromed and there is no rust. Structurally 100% sound. I suspect the shifter bosses are brazed on at a later point and that the frame was given a repaint after that. I have seen with a more perfectionist attitude performed paintjobs. You could consider stripping it, polishing the chrome to a deep gloss and have new decals made.

Looking for 120 GBP shipped

So far there have been no takers for the Remy and there even haven't been interested parties through PM. Possibly this has something to do with the unawareness or not being familiar with Remy. Remy fits in the same tradition of Dutch exotics as do Presto, Zieleman, RIH Bustraan etc. All very small to very very small number made custom thoroughbreds from back in the day. Frames handcrafted by one known builder, not by a crew or staff.

This frame is looking for someone with the willingness to give it back 100% of its glory and pride while preserving the authentity and pureness as much as possible. Someone with tact who knows how to do it.

Price drop, made possible by the Greeks :wink: 115 GBP shipped now.

You talking about me again? :wink:

It does look very interesting - but I've got to many already!!

Give me a day to think about though................

I'd need some more period Campag gear for it.
