I've got this rather nice "Tourmalet" frame for sale. I know nothing about this make, Google reveals nothing either. So if anyone has any background info on it I'd be grateful.
So to the things I do know. Size is 23" ct x 22" cc. Full Nervex lugs including the bb. Simplex dropouts including wheel guide on the non drive side. Very few braze ons. Think it is probably 531 plain gauge, seat post is 26.4mm and the bike built weighs in at just over 10kg. Lovely green paint although it is not in pristine condition unfortunately, nice star bands on the seat tube, lined lugs and chrome dropouts. Has mudguard eyes and you probably could squeeze some guards in there. There's a small ding at the bottom of the dowtube on the drive side, this was just below the band-on cable guide.
I reckon the bike is from the 60's looking at the lugs and some of the equipment that was fitted included a Brooks leather saddle with a steel Simplex seatpin and Mafac Dural Forge brakes with red washers which would date it to the late 60's I think. Other stuff was all replacement equipment of reasonable standard. Clearly it was made for 700c sprint rims rather than 27" wheels which again indicates it's pedigree.
The headset and bb is included. The hs is a rather nice Tange model, has Falcon printed on it but you'll need an extra spacer as I removed the centre pull hanger. The bb is just a cheap sealed unit, I do not have the correct tools to remove it and don't want to muller it anymore than it already has been.
Anyway here are some pics:

Not sure on value. It is beautiful but the paint is tatty so I'll say £120 + £10 postage. (wheels not included)
