That's a fantastic job I also have a dave Russell built from 653 which I have painted in near enough the same shade of red as yours we obviously have the same good taste lol. I'm at the stage of acquiring my parts but I haven't made my mind up what yet. I will put up some pics as I go.


Look forward to seeing it :D

this Dave Russell frame and forks is now for sale...

It needs a bit of brass filler in the RH chain stay due to the appearance of a couple of minute pin prick holes appearing through the paint.

I'll be at the Reg Harris cycle jumble at manchester velodrome on saturday 27th August with a stall if anyone is interested.....

looking for 100 pounds

What size is the frame and are those holes actually in the tubing?

Thanks,
Mark.

hi,
from memory the frame and forks are 55cc x 55cc but i'd have to measure to make sure.
The holes are actually in the tubing - i took the frame to C&G finishers in Liverpool (who restore many frames and also paint the new Hetchins) - they said that they could be filled with brass although they would need to sandblast/strip the paint - therefore once done it would need a respray.
