No just the small matter of selling my beloved Rossin track frame. One in, one out. Mrs orders! I'm past my 8 bike limit! Argh!

Doubt that it's 753 as stated. MKM production finished in 1980 and I don't think it is suitable for fillet brazing anyway.

What is the frame number please

Who mentioned 753? I seriously doubt it too, I thought they used mainly 531 DB and sometimes 531 SL in the other tubes except the DT which would make sense due to the higher ST/DT joint around where the tube walls get thinner.
Old Ned, you seem to be knowledgable about Ultimates. Have you ever come across a pure track version before? This appears to have no brazings for road use except brake holes in both crown and bridge.
Will post Frame number when I take delivery. And more pics etc

Just looked back at the original listing and there it is : Frame material 753
Sorry Old Ned

I did ask the seller if he remembers a frame tubing transfer at all and did mention he thought it was 753 'as it was a new tubing then'. Apparently he did have it resprayed at some point. He's just delivered the fame to my sister-in-law out near Gloucester (a lovely old man in his 70's ) was her description, so I shall be getting my hands on it soon. Can't wait.
