The frame is a classic Higgins with a 23" top tube. I bought it about 20 years ago and built it up using first whatever parts I already had.

Transmission is a differential drive and I have recently lowered the gears with a new triple 44-32-22 Spa Cycles chainset and 7 speed 14-16-18-20-22-24-28 block. Rear mech is Campag Mirage 8 speed and the front a Shimano 400CX. Mirage STI levers.

If the gears are too low I will swap the chainset for a brand new Campag 52-42-32 Xenon

2 front brakes - Mafac cantilevers behind GB Coureur Plus on an extension.

Rear wheels are Alesa 9017 rims and the front is a Wolber rim on a Sachs New Success hub.

Cinelli 4¼" handlebar stem and Cinelli 17" wide bars, Stronglight headset. Saddle is a Siltec

Buyer collects although I will deliver it within 75 miles of Maidstone for the cost of the petrol (Sunday only within the London Congestion charge area)

I wish I had space for this. Riding it would make me smile.
