Looks like a speedwell to me too......They appeared during my cycling days in the 70's. The construction seemed pretty variable like they didn't have the whole production process sorted. Had to be welded in a special atmosphere etc. IIRC......

All a bit hit-and-miss and I would never dare ride one LOL

Campag brakes...... they have the quick release levers which are flat (health and safety) so very "retro"

Not sure if I want to bid ??

The house clearer in question is having a crash course in retro Campag pricing! He's now registered on lfgss to say hi to everyone discussing the hoard.

I just want to know the answer to that old question "Who would live in a house like this?" I thought I was a hoarder!

Great viewing; don't think I'll be able to afford any of it...

Now at £620, in the questions someone generously offered £85 to save on ebay fees.
