Having mentioned last week that I would like a Dave Lloyd
CATS WISKAS frame one promptly appeared on ebay... in my size
Rather than sit through the ebay process and end up losing the frame I contacted the seller and struck a deal
The pictures from the ebay advert are in my gallery
The frame is built from Reynolds 653 and is Fillet Brazed with all joints smoothed and it has a very neat looking Wishbone rear end
Once it arrives I'll get some better pictures and figure out what on earth I'm going to do with it
The owner had it originaly built with a not to fancy build of XT with an XTR rear mech. He thought the frame was Mid 90's but I would have said earlier since it has a 1" XT threaded headset and Pace RC35 Air Ballance forks.
I'm thinking of building it with whatever I can get my hand on and then see if the retro bug bites me any harder...
Frame, fork and stem are coming as per the pics but unknown at the moment is the seatpost size (but I'm guessing 26.8 or 27.2).
Does anyone on here have any old reviews of this frame or info on Dave Lloyd frames?
I'm guessing it's a rare beast. A few friends had Dave Lloyd's back in the early nineties because Neil Ross (of Neil Ross cycles in Aberdeen) was friendly with Dave and used to sell them. Neil did good deals for local racers/riders and I've seen and ridden a few Lloyds before, but I've never seen a CATS WISKAS in the flesh
Looking forward to it arriving
