Yup, you read correctly, 64cm!

My wife has initiated a one in one out policy on bicycles, but i've found a way to circumvent the rules - old frames! This was my first 'proper' road bike - was told it was a 23 3/4" frame which it most certainly is not!

Dimensions are:
Seattube: 64cm C-T
Toptube: 59cm C-C
Headtube: 21cm

Pics here: https://picasaweb.google.com/cdjohnson01/Peugeot753Pro?authkey=Gv1sRgCOSA_vTq4auGUQ#slideshow/5821145889958973090

It was originally built with full 600 Ultegra tricolour, cinelli crit bars and a rolls saddle.

For someone much bigger than me! The frame is straight and true and still fairly light, but the paint work has seen better days and suffered from my father's ill-advised attempts to touch it up. It has chrome ends including chainstay and part way up both seat stays, from the looks of it the fork is fully chromed under the paint too.

I'm looking for £120 plus postage but will consider sensible offers. Frame is close to Glasgow.

Cheers.

Good price for 753. You just gotta wait for a really tall fella to see this.

Cheers,
in hindsight i'm amazed i rode this as my main bike for so long- i'm 'only' 6 ft! Having read a bit more the toptube is relatively short for the size.

Open to offers, would like to see the back of it to clear some room.

bump - a nice round £100 makes it yours plus some postage pennies

After a quiet week i put it up on ebay - with -12hrs I cannot take it down. However, if you can wait a few hours looks like you will pick up a bargain tonight:
