ROTRAX SUPERCOURSE ROAD FRAME 1951 Cool lugs and details
Seat Tube (ctt): 55cm (21.5in)
Top Tube (ctc): 57cm (22.5in)
Rear dropout width: 120mm
Wheel size: 27in/sprints/700C
Brake drop with sprints/700C: 65mm
Rotrax from Southampton built some really nice frames in the early 1950s - this one, a Supercourse model features gorgeous hand cut lugs and lovely details - just take a look at the rear brake bridge and the pump pegs... The frame itself is very sound though it has had its gear hanger cut off - this could easily be replaced... And it will restore to very beautiful and distinctive frame. Lots of details are available at: ... ax-hs.html
It could easily be used as fixed or singlespeed conversion. £135


MAXI SPORTS LO-PRO FRAME ex Lauret Roux Castorama 1995
Seat Tube (ctt): 58cm 54cm (ctc)
Top Tube (ctc): 51cm
Rear dropout width: 130mm
Wheel size: 700C rear, 650C (26in) front
Frame tubing: Columbus aluminium
This stunning looking frame was Laurent Roux’s TT frame for his 1995 season at Castorama. This frame is absolutely gorgeous despite a few scratches to the paint and is very, very special. With vertical dropouts it is not ideal for singlespeed/fixed use unless you manage to get a magic chain length. £195


Seat Tube (ctc): 54cm (56.5cm ctt)
Top Tube (ctc): 22.25in (56.5cm)
Rear dropout width: 130mm
Front Brake drop with 700C wheel: 46mm
Seatpost size: 27.0mm
Wheel size: 700C
This is a rather nice NOS MBK frame from the early 1990s built from Vitus tubing which is ovalised at the bottom bracket. The top tube takes the rear brake cable in a slot along the length of the top tube's underside – very neat and cool. The semi-vertical dropouts should mean that a fixed or single-speed conversion should not be too difficult. £89


Seat Tube (ctc): 21.5in (55cm)
Top Tube (ctc): 22in (56cm)
Rear dropout width: 122mm
Brake drop with 700C wheel: 49mm
Wheel size: 700C
Peugeot made very nice budget road frames in the 1970s/80s - this one has very good paint. The rear dropout width and horizontal dropouts make it an ideal candidate for a budget conversion to fixed or singlespeed. £29


COUGAR TT LO-PRO FRAME built for Chris Boardman c1991
Seat Tube (ctt): 40cm
Top Tube (ctc): 53cm
Rear dropout width: 130mm
Wheel size: 700C rear, 650C (26in) front
Frame tubing: Unknown
This stunning frame finished in a black with a speckle was built by Cougar Cycles for Chris Boardman to attack several short distance time trial records c1991 before he turned professional. The fairings are not structural - they are probably fibre-glass! In one or two places there are cracks between the tubes and the fairings but nothing at all significant. This frame could be ridden with a suitable length seatpost riders of between about 5ft 6in and 6ft tall - the top top tube length is the important dimension... The vertical dropouts mean that it is not especially suitable for singlespeed or fixed use unless you manage a magic chain length. £195


Seat Tube (ctt): 59.5cm 54cm (ctc)
Top Tube (ctc): 55cm
Rear dropout width: 130mm
Wheel size: 700C
Cannondale’s 2.8 series of road frames were very highly regarded in the early 90s - Cannondale had been one of the pioneers of of using oversize aluminium tubing to build light stiff frames in the 80s and with the 2.8 series took it a step further - the 2.8 name referred to the weight in pounds of the bare frame frame. This frame is in in very nice condition it has a couple of very tiny dings neither of which can be easily found and the paint is in excellent condition. £175


Seat Tube (ctc): 55cm
Top Tube (ctc): 55cm
Rear dropout width: 122mm
Wheel size: 700C
Brake drop with 700C/Sprint wheel: 50mm
Seatpost size: 27.0mm
Mercks road frames from the early 1970s are very rare in this country. Merckx licensed the use of his name to different builders in countries across Europe - in England inexplicably it was Falcon but in Belgium it was Kessels. This frame sourced from Germany was probably built by Kessels. Its obviously a quality frame with drilled lugs and heavily slotted BB shell. The frame weight is about 2kg and it takes a 27.0mm seatpost so is built from good quality tubing. The long Campy dropouts suggest it is from the first half of the 1970s. Its ideal for a singlespeed or fixed conversion with its long horizontal dropouts. £225
