My friend also has a Keith Coppell.
Iv'e been on the hunt for one of these myself
Are you really going to split it,as mentioned in the opening post!!
I'd be interested in this if you were to sell!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All the best
Now that I have rebuilt the bike, it really is a bit too nice to split. My plans are to put some Look pedals on it and then take it out for a few sunny rides over the course of the next few weeks.
The problem is that I now have too many bikes (8 at last count) and actually prefer the rebuilding / restoring to actually owning them once they are complete, therefore it is highly likely that this will be put up for sale at some stage in the not too distant future - holidays to pay for etc!
The bike really is lovely, especially the details on the frame and the quirky details such as the straight pull spokes and single gear lever mount. The components are virtually un-used, especially things like the hub bearings which are like new inside and the rear mech and chainset, both of which look like new now that they have been cleaned up.
PM me if you really are interested in the bike as, depending on price
it would be nice to see it go to a good home!
