A question about a Gillott Frame on EBay

EltonFrog

Yup, no, that didn’t work.
Is this priced about right?

Would I be able to furnish with modern components or is too old for them?

I can’t tell by the photos if it’s a track bike or a road bike.

I’d be grateful for any information before I commit.

Can you paste the actual link as my cheapo tablet does not like the shortcut! There's a section on lfgss I think about new kit on old frames.

It is a road frame. You should be able to fit it out with modern stuff. What are you thinking? Sti evers, outboard bearing BB, modern wheels, how many speed cassette?

You should be able to buy the decals to finish it off.

@CarlP that's a cracker
The only issue i can think of is the rear wheel spacing but that can be cold set etc etc a visit or a chat with a good frame builder will give you an idea of cost
Is the bottom bracket std threading ?

...... so you could fit a hollowtech BB and chain set if you wish. You'll need to fit under BB cable guide.
RJ the bike guy has a video on YouTube about cold setting a frame.

Yes, that sort of thing, though I don’t have a clue about what I’m doing.

Not quite sure what happened there. I did post to say I could see a stop for a rear mech cable so is a road frame and that lfgss is here lol

I’ve seen the cold setting video a while back. No idea about standard threading.
