I've another Royale 10 frame in the garage so perhaps I should do a his and hers pair to sell

and talking of nostalgia premium, my 1984 Nottingham LU 531 frame (Competition 12 / Gran sport 12 maybe?) just went for £425 on eBay
Well I definitely didn't ask enough for that bike when I sold it then.
eBay auction with a realistic start price, no reserve and no buy it now - that's the market price every time!

... and freshly painted, dodgy decaled SBDU 753 Team Liveried frames make £800 - £1500 on eBay... the mind boggles... ;)

I think the market for steel framed bikes in general is very location biased in the UK and in my part of it I would be lucky to get anywhere even remotely close to that

I know and I have people coming out to me from there to buy bikes as I'm much cheaper than bikes in London, but locally I'd be far better off moving a fair bit north if I wanted to make any money, its lucky its just a hobby, I do it for the enjoyment and only want to get my money back because I couldn't make a profit out of it.

We could make a fortune looking at this lash up.
I know, there's a little collection of half decent Raleigh frames in my garage crying out for a nice shade of rouge, If only I'd got my backside in gear in the spring.

I did do a ladies one a while ago for our lass to use and this is the only picture I have of it sadly because that really did have sloping top tubes and I had to be very inventive to make the decals fit.


Better copyright that design quick before Brailsford sees it...

Well, if we're going to show and tell our 'professional' bicycles instead of that Raleigh....
