For sale due to a persistent achilles injury that means I can't ride fixed is my 'Rourke' fixed gear.

You'll notice this doesn't have the typical Brian Rourke fastback seatstays, but a very elegant seatstay cluster instead - I'm unsure if it is a Rourke or just painted by his workshop.

Anyway:

Reynolds 531 Professional tubing

54cm top tube and 54cm seattube. Note cable guides have been removed from the toptube - see photos.

No other dents/cracks/anything nasty, and lovely patina on the paint

Dura Ace 7700 chainset (170mm) with new TA Alize 47t track chainring, new 105 Octalink BB and DA chainring bolts

Nitto SP72 'Jaguar' seatpost and Pearl 8 stem, both with NJS stamp

Brand new YBN hollow pin super light gold 1/8" track chain and new 20t cog. Dura Ace NJS lockring.

Brand new Tange Falcon 1" cartridge bearing headset

Lovely Selle San Marco Concor Lite leather saddle (original 80s one with quality leather, not a repro).

Rear wheel is a Goldtec double fixed hub (rare 126mm spacing - perfect chainline!) laced to Mavic A319 rim, with a Schwalbe Marathon tyre. Minimal wear to the brake track. Bearings freshly regreased and very smooth.

Front wheel is a Shimano XT T780 hub (brand new bearing, axle and cones - there wasn't much wrong with the old ones, but I got a brand new hub cheap so swapped it all over when I was regreasing) also laced to a Mavic A319 rim, with a Halo Twin Rail Berlin tyre. Again, minimal wear to the brake track.

Pedals not included.

£350 ono.

Collection preferred from Sheffield, but I have a box and can post at cost.

Hi mate, I LOVE the frame but...would you consider £160 for frame only? I would bring it back to a road setup so need to consider price for putting back the bosses and powdercoat. Let me know. Cheers. Shiro
