Also, rumour had it that some builders used Columbus for the main tubes and 531 for the forks and stays to shave off a few grammes.......just as 753 was coming over the horizon :)

You sure know your stuff Shaun.

It really is an interesting one. Clearly is something very special and as much as I like the paint I'm thinking that picking out the detail like the Cinelli above would really make it oustanding...

I'd say it's not an Aende, from the point of view of the seat cluster. My own 1985 one and every other one I've seen have shot-in rear stays, rather than wrapped over. I distinctly recall Pongo commenting on the stays when I ordered mine and it seeemd to be his trademark feature.


I'm pretty sure you're correct. :?

Still a very nice frame though.

Shot in, fastback, italian, italienate...........the terms have changed over the years to describe how the rear stays are attached near the seat bolt.

Having said that for anything "road" orientated the wrapround rear stays did seem to linger, the Falcon Pro's rode such a frame in the late 70's as did others and Aende frames with such a bent also did..

Have a look on this flikr Falcon set as well

Withdrawn from sale.
