I am having to reluctantly sell my bikes following a permanent hip injury had consigned me to just pedaling to the shops and not much more.

Paul Donohue bespoke Renolds 853 TT 1" headset frame, sourced from a local 'old' cyclist that was made late 90's , early 00's. I had the original fitting instructions and bill but it appears to have been cleaned up at some point. I had the groovy metallic purple and gold paint blasted and the frame powder coated white - came with the 1" Mizuno composite forks as photos.

I build it up with modern bits:
Eatson wheelset (destickered)
Sram Rival drivetrain
Sram Apex brakes and Apex double tap brake / shifters
Ritchey bars and seatpost, Deba stem. Charge Spoon seat.
I used a headset extender as it was a bit low for me
Frame top tube effective length 55cm, seat tube length 52cm.

Breaks my heart to sell this as its now a lovely all day bike to ride , but its no use me hanging onto it.
I'd like £350 for it, but am open to sensible offers.
Collection preferred from Ipswich area but delivery can be arranged.
More photos are available on request.

You might find it easier to sell if you advertise it as a Paul Donohue, and not a Phil. And it's definitely not late 70's / early 80's - more like late 90's / early 00's... looks in nice condition though, don't think it will take much to sell.

Cheer for the advice - that'll teach me to post this in a hurry without properly checking it

A pic of the whole bike, rather than just the steerer extension might help...

Ah. I see now, from a different post. Can you not edit original post to add it there? A bit confusing for a blind old sod like me.
