Knight

Not really knowing anything about retro road bikes, only bikes with fat tyres, I was wondering how desirable a knight would be, with full Dura ace, circa early 80's I'm guessing?

Nice :), is that first gen Dura Ace?

To be honest matey, I don't know? I only deal in mountain bikes, but it sure looks pretty early stuff, possibly even late 70's?

Edit: After a little research, turns out it's 2nd gen 7100!

Dura Ace 7100 was late 70's to early 80's links in with the frame which has over bb cable guides and nutted brakes. Classy frame and kit :)

Looks much more my size than what I'm riding at the moment, I'd be interested if the price was right and I can get to it (where are you?).

Good save! Knight frames were quite good and with the early DA it's a great find. I would keep it if I had found it.

Worth Googling Knight. I think they may have employed ex-Viking builders?
