To my mind the SL tubeset, is the Columbus equivalent to Reynolds 531. Whilst not quite to the level of the other tubeset offered by the seller on the other frame, to my mind it didnt need quite as much work and it does have the rear cable guide still in place.
Its nice to see something different and yet still handmade in Great Britain too.
I think this could be quite a bike when its built tbh.
Im kinda glad you did have it, i think if i were let loose with this i would go a little wild with it when it came to paint work. After all, Really you have a totally Blank canvas, with no constraints other than your imagination.
The world is your Oyster, you cant go wrong.
Here is the only other example that im aware of that has been shown on the site.
A custom ordered lee Cooper Tarrantula made from Reynolds 653 with the rigid straight fork.
Given Just how many frames lee Cooper and Co, have fabricated under there own name and built for Other companies and shops/shop based Race teams, it really is nice to finally see something here on retro bike.
this will be a worthy addition to the British Steel thread too IMHO.
Looking forward to seeing your imagination run wild with this.
