1975 23" Claud Butler Olympic Road Bike
I recently had the frame recently professionally resprayed in Flamboyant Red with replacement decals - sparkles in sunlight! Two pairs of bottle bosses were added at the same time.
Made with Reynolds 531 frame and forks. It's quite light for an old bike and makes for a nice, smooth ride. The gears/brakes could do with a little tweaking, but I don't have the knowledge/time to do this. Rear brake cable end frayed, so needs replacing and front tyre may need replacing soon.
Mix of quality good condition vintage parts and recently bought components:
Vintage:Suntour VX GT rear mech, Suntour VX down tube shifters and front shifter, Weinmann side caliper brakes and levers, SR Apex double chainset 52/39, Schurmann Super front wheel with Mallard Hub, GB Handlebar, MKS peddles.
Nearly New: SKS toe clips, Christophe strps, 6 speed Shimano Hyperglide freewheel 11/28,Weinmann rear wheel, Salmon Brake pads Schwalbe Active rear tyre, Nitto 80mm stem and SKS mudguards.
At the moment it's collection only from Twickenham, but may be able to arrange courier if/ I can get hold of a bike box.
PS I can also add a vintage triple Stronglight chainset that I was eventually going to replace the Sakae with once the rings wore out(but in good condition at the moment)
Cash on collection preferred.
