Pretty sure the listing never mentioned Tim Gould’s name, so may have been unaware of the frames provenance. It may surface again on here... looks like a bit of a project with a rotten drive side chainstay and makes you wonder what the rest of the frame is like. Not a cheap project to get up and running again!

Correct it didn’t but it had a decal on to tempt ppl, plus 753 tubing Peugeot used shite metal on there cars, no way would they have made that frame set.

And I had a 205 gti

Probably a member on here and saw this thread :lol:

Decent tubing, poor condition, and no real evidence of who the frame may once have belonged to, let alone it being one of TG's old bikes.

Surely someone on here knows & could covertly ask him if he remembers?

Didn't Chas make Peugeot's race bikes, or some of them?

Luckily this bike is currently in my possession! :)

They made lugged road bikes out of 753 in the late 80s early 90s, but I think they struggled to create race worthy MTBs hence Chas Roberts involvement…

I don’t think it’s his frame now, as there is another on eBay now with an Alan cyclocross frame for £60

Looks like someone has taken on the challenge of that restoration! Good luck to them...
