My Mrs says it's time for it to go. THE 1983 Competition Record Breaking Brian Rourke time trial bike ridden by me (Ian Cammish).
Reluctantly here it is. (I've put a starting bid of £1500 ... which reflects the minimum value I put on it and the fact I don't really want to get rid of it ... but at least it'll keep the Mrs happy if I can say it's up on here for sale) :-)
Resprayed since 1983 but ridden to lots of Championship wins in these colours.
Unfortunately the PMP cranks cracked a long time ago and were replaced with Ron Kitching's superlight Tevano ones (still very nice and extremely rare).
Mavic 'Mecano' rear mechs (collector's piece in itself).
Modolo Kronos callipers and levers (cost a bleedin' fortune ... just do a search on here and see for yourself).
Modolo Kronos gear lever.
Cinelli bars and stem
Cinelli M71 pedals
Cinelli buffalo padded saddle.
Probably not the wheels the records were broken on but these ones won National Championships nevertheless. Campag l/f with OR10 and Super Champion rims 28/28 spoking.
Seta Extra No 3 on the rear (knackered) and a No 1 on the front which holds air.
Dura Ace 7400 headset.
Own a piece of time trialling history by breaking my heart and making my wife happy.
(DO please look after it if you buy it).
Size? 59cms seat tube c/c
59cm top tube c/c along the slope (not horizontally). But let's face it you're not going to want to ride this surely? It should be framed and hung above someone's fireplace. My Mrs is fed up looking at it above ours ... one of the reason she wants rid.
Campagnolo Ghibli rear disc wheel is NOT included in the sale. Campag l/f 28 spoked Mavic OR10 is.
Just bumped the starting price up by £100 as I'm getting a bit anxious about the amount of interest being shown in it. If I'm not careful I could be kissing this baby 'good-bye'.
