It certainly does , but with a garage full of steel at the mo i am not in any great rush
Collected this evening. It's had one owner since new and he clearly was upset to let this bike go as it was a present from his dad, but was moving later this month.
The good: All original, except for more recent tyres. Original brake pads, cables, everything and it all works. Shimano Exage 500 throughout. And the purple frame was hardly marked.
The bad: one toe strap was broken and bar end plugs missing. Oh, and the big one - the seatpost is stuck . I've put penetrating oil down it for 24 hours and we'll see.
oh dear still the parts were worth more
21" Sid Standard Superbe. looks to be an early 80's:
same seller has an interesting looking 40's/50's lugless Royal Enfield:
both fantastic looking bikes
Depending on the size, worth a tenner ?
Hmm, that's within walking distance of me too. If I didn't already have a half-built fixed-wheel project, and a road bike that's almost finished renovation, and...
It is 23", if anyone is interested, a little too big for me
Ach, my size too
It is made from Phoenix tubing, bit of a discussion here :
Did someone mention 23" Viscount......have I missed something? Link?
Falcon pro and Pro Super were cro mo tubing, maybe ex Viscount stuff?
Ecosmo 20" Wheel Folding Steel Tandem £77.00, reserve not met.
If interested in the bike, ask for a better picture of the phoenix tubing sticker. As sometimes it’s only one tube!
Yes that’s a distinct possibility, a mixture of Phoenix and Tange? That would explain the generic Cro Mo sticker!
Seller says 1980's, methinks older: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gentlemans-Raleigh-bicycle-1980s-3-gears-needs-refurbishment/132515682728
