Hello Retrobikers

I have 2 old frames for give away/sale:

First one is a broken Raleigh Record Sprint. Reynolds 501.
It has a broken dropout on the drive side- see picture.
At some stage its been sprayed matt black (not a professional job) but since then its had some wear with chips etc. But apart from the break the frame is straight and sound. Only a little rust.
Original (I think) headset included.
Seat-tube 58cm ctc, top-tube 56cm ctc.
I'm not a welder but perhaps it could be fixed?

Price: FREE -Collection only from E1, London (Stepney Green)


Second is also a Raleigh, 'Sports' model I think.
Its a good sturdy frame. It doesn't weigh a ton, but its not lightweight. It's straight and sound and has some neat details like the wrap-over seatstays. Think its for 27" wheels.
At some stage it has been possibly hand painted so the finish is not so good.
A little rust that I can see.
Cottered bottom bracket, steel headset and stem included. The stem is stuck at the moment but I haven't had a proper go at it. Probably in a vice it would come out no problem - the seatpost came out easy. I'll include the seatpost too.
Seat-tube 56cm ctc, top-tube 56cm ctc.
Could make for a lovely retro 3-speed build.

Price: £30 -Collection from Stepney Green, or posted in bike box for £20 extra (UK mainland).

Thanks

Jon

Jon,

Would I be able to buy the headset on the damaged frame as it is one of the few items I'm missing for a retro rebuild?

Regards


Ian

Hi Wright_payne

You can have the headset for nowt. It probably needs a good service, maybe new bearings.
You can pick up or I'll just post it second class.
PM me to arrange this.

Ok. Does the postage cost cover both frames. If so then please confirm full cost. Thanks

£50 covers both frames and postage for both to UK mainland.

Headset on broken frame may not be included as someone else expressed interest before you.

Still £50. The broken frame was free so all cost is for the blue frame.
Not charging the other person for the headset so no reduction.

Ok. Against my better wisdom. Can I just check that the only damage is to the black one with a split drop out at rear right side. No other dings or dents? If so then let me know by pm how you wish to be paid . Oh and can you let me know rear and front oln and length of chain stays so I can consider cold setting if needed. Thanks
