Seller notes: Looking as you would expect from the 70's. A lot of the paintwork is chipped which for me adds character. There is a little surface rust on the frame which i have treated. There are no dents in the steel frame and all threads are clear and in good working order as are the bearings. I have not attempted to remove the cranks and bottom bracket however.
Frame Size: 23 inch Brand: freddie grubb
Wheel Size: 700C Type: Road Racing Bike
Frame Material: Steel Brake Type: Caliper - Center Pull
A mid 70's Galibier Freddie Grubb which would have rolled out the factory during the Holdsworth era. See this link for details:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/nkilgariff/FreddieGrubb.htm

I acquired the frame a couple of years ago which had been built up with pretty crappy components and very few of the originals. I have completely cleaned the bike - treated the rust on the frame (sanded and painted with nail varnish), cleaned + greased headsets / all bearings / the hubs and replaced all cables, cable housings and some of the components including the chain / brake blocks / handlebar tape / seat / seat post and handlebars. Wheels run true, the gears shift well and brakes work.

She is ready to ride or take apart, start again and use the components! If truth be told this is a hop scotch of parts on a lovely frame. My intention was to use this as my beater / boozer bike but I'm moving to a smaller home and need the space.

Details as follows:
Frame size 23 inch - Reynolds Steel (no stickers)
Rear Wheel - Mavic MA2 Miche Hub - Scwalbe Blizzard
Front Wheel - Rigida Campagnlo Hub - Schwalbe Durano London
Brakes - Weinmann Vanquer 610 centrepulls with Kool Stops
Saddle - San Marco Regal Suede
Handlebar - French unknown - hemp twine and shellacked (spelling!?) Vellox Trossostar handlebar tape
Stem - GB Hindiminium
Gears - Shimano single shifter
Rear Cassette - unknown
Cranks - cottered
Pedals - rat cage
Headset - unknown - looks like the original

It needs a pair of brake hoods which I am on the look out for. I am likely to keep the Crane bell. There is also a set of full black Bluemel fenders if you want them.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
