Unlike all the SBDU Team Replica frames we see with capped seat stays and team colours, they are very common and hundreds were made, with plenty coming on to the market. This silver brazed frame is incredibly rare and it is very unique... it's very unlikely another will ever appear on the market again...

Already received a bid, won't appear on as many searches unless he unmuddles his SDBU.

Very nice but to small for me.

The frame for sale shares the same rear end as the Dynaflite with flattened aero seat stays and the same non aero, non recessed seat pin pinch bolt... send the link of this thread to the Facebook groups, it may help explain the mystery.. :wink:

Seat bolt looks a bit sticky-out, maybe would have expected something more aero lol

My first reaction too. Ugly as sin. How can a frame like that be let down with a bolt more suitable for roof space carpentry?

Would look better with a slim head bolt on there :wink:

Been following this auction.
The price went up after a flurry of bids on Sunday morning.
Just gone back down after the high bid was withdrawn.

Buyers remorse before buying?

The other bidder has withdrawn their bids as well.
No bids now, very odd.

Anyone know why?
