He's hoping for £500 for the F&F and £500 for the finishing kit.

A bit optimistic maybe, especially after the Speedwell a few weeks ago only went for about £500

Apparently an old set of fairly nondescript wheels are worth 300 quid :o

I just love this bit:

Ok, I don't really know where to start.
Possibly a Lamborghini-made frame, could have been commissioned by Colnago, but as Deeside cycles (who sold it in 1984 to the guy who sold it to me) are no longer around, you'd need to ask Graham Weigh.

Built in 1984, possibly one of 50.



So basically he hasn't a clue and is just inventing random stuff! In which case I have a Domino's Pizza box in my kitchen that was possibly in the car when James Dean crashed, possibly when he was on his was to deliver it to me, probably through a time portal, possibly with Marilyn Monroe in the passenger seat holding this very Pizza box. Offers over £1,000, or £300 for the crusts and £700 for the box.

Deeside are still around - now owned again by Graham Weigh.

Made by Lamborghini??

I thought they made tractors :twisted:

split the box? Are you mad? With all this potential history?

Forgot to mention, box was possibly made by Massey Fergusson

I recently sold my NOS wheelset (Campy Omega/Mavic 501's/DT spokes) for £135, I wouldn't exactly call the Omega/Campy record combo nondescript but a used set sure isn't worth a 1/3 of that amount.
Nice frame, forks are nicer but without the provenance it could be anything.
Certainly not worth a bag of sand :wink:
