I re sprayed the bike metallic cyan blue and polished up everything,
Also added some risers and thats about it.
Overall cost of the build was about $400
Frame:1940s track (53 ST-55 TT)
Pedals: Sillfield sprint
Seat: Arius Pro
Wheelset:Superbe hubs laced to mavic CD.2s
Tyres:Tufo s3 Pros
here it is:
Just sprayed up
for an old bike the rake on those forks is sweet
the steering head angle is pretty mellow though…
Have stripped the frame of all its goodies.
the frame is 55-cm (C-C) top tube and 54-cm (C-C) seat tube
35cm wide alloy drops
That stem is nice… Phillipe made some good stuff, and it looks lugged? overfilled lug? lug plus fillet? it looks good anyway!
I say keep all of the original bits with it, including the wheels.
What is stamped on the crankset?
Good size too…
keep it original, parts look in good nic
but if your keen on putting new stuff, id be keen on the stem an crankset.
that stem is awesome dude
That looks like the healing frame i have on ebay now
The drop outs look very similar and so do the lugs…do you know if its Australian made?
yeh, the stem is very nice and is very detailed on top also fancy lug work,
the only thing I found was on the chainring has “50” for the amount of teeth and also some numbers in and around a small Knife???
Have no idea were the frame was made,
But the bb and headset both have made in england stamped on them.
also just measured the cranks and their 165mm
Hey, after a few coats of paint stripper the frame went through dark green, lighter green and then a metallic blue and the fork had red.
I then started to rub back the frame to bare metal and its coming up nicely
I have finished rubbing back the frame to bare metal and it came up good considering its nearly 70 YEARS OLD.
Hopefully it will get sprayed tomorrow and will be a metallic cyan blue
Will post more pics when its sprayed
looks even better in the flesh
awesome job mate, making me re-consider selling mine and rebuilding it proper:-D
