I was lucky enough to purchase this lovely bike about 10 years ago. I remember seeing photos of the Condor bikes in this colour in the cycling mags in the 1980s so when I saw this one I had to have it. It is quite a small bike but in stunning condition. Condor have confirmed that the bike was built for the partner of Ron Groom the director of Percy Bilton, sponsors of the Condor team at the time, obviously it has had very liitle use. Lots of detailing in the frame and Cinelli lugs.

Oh my!!! How lovely is that!!!? Has it ever been ridden? Still has the tag on the Turbo.

Complete 600 group including the most gorgeous quill stem of all time by the looks of it.

Thanks for sharing :D

Originally had white Turbo saddle but I swapped it for an NOS black one. I assume the bike was used at some point but I was told Ron Groom had a large collection of Condor bikes so likely some saw very little use.
