Hi all.

Just built up a carbon bike, and now looking for a retro project. Looking for a ratty, but straight, Reynolds or Columbus frameset. I’m missing my old Columbus Fondriest.

I’ve got about £100 to chuck at it.

I might be asking too much given my budget, but let’s see, eh?

I’m in Cheshire and can collect.

Has the fact that the whole nation have become cyclists meant that there’s no frames kicking about, or am I totally unrealistic to think that £100 would buy a beater frame?

Got a Peugeot 653 with a ridiculous story behind it, that means you could have that for £100 posted or I could meet you at a suitable distance at an M62 service station with it. Can send pix if you like.

It's a Pug 653 frame and forks but repainted years ago in yellow and blue Raleigh Dynatech colours with Raleigh decals. Apparently it was done for a team mechanic who couldn't very well be seen riding a Peugeot. I've no idea whether that's right but it is a Peugeot 653. I bought it thinking it was a 56 (very top end of my size range) and without measuring but it's a 58.

It was a very good paint job but a bit tired looking now and some of the decals are gone.

Any use?

Still looking, although the budget has increased slightly to £250-£300.

I have this mid-eighties, high end (Columbus SL) Guerciotti. Size 57 cm. No structural damage but has the usual paintchips (good overall condition though). Chrome on forks has spotted so this could use a re-chrome one day.

Looking for 240 € shipped to the UK.
