Lord of the Teapot said:I have a smalled frame Sid Motram(?) frame which I think is 501.
When I get the time I'll dig it out of the shed and check it for size etc.
Is there any rush for a suitable frame, Big Bren?
Just to make you sick Roger old chapHilldodger said:Aarrgghh!! that's a Leicester made frame and needs to be in the heritage collection!
We have 531 frames at Cyclemagic and can surely sort something out so that the Mottram comes here and a decent frame goes to big Bren

A chap gave usa 27" wheeled Mercian at back2bikes last week
I asked him if he was sure but he didnt bat an eyelid, said it was worth nowt and he wasnt intrested in ebaying it
Oh, we had a hobbs as well from the late 40s, and we also have a 50s viking with bar end shifters
Zoiders said:Someone gave us an old box full of bike and lathe bits
I found a Sturmey Archer ASC 3 speed fixed hub in it...which was nice
We havent built it in to a wheel yet as we have all the parts but an operating rod which was a funny length compared to the normal sturmeys
Big Bren said:I'm looking for an old 531 bike or frame for a fixie project. It needs to be relatively small - 50cm or below. Ideally I'm after a Raleigh, but that's not essential.
I'm prepared to pay a fair price for the right bike.
