Apologies in advance if someone here is responsible for this. Looks like a resprayed Apollo IV. Nice bike with a good collection of parts but the price seems rather ambitious!

Yes, logo looks the same as mine, which has sticker saying 'Handbuilt by Ken and Paul Evans'.

Only problem is that this one has a sticker what says 7005 Aluminium & made in USA

I think it's actually an Australian built Ricardo. Not an Apollo.

Bruce, he be talking about the white sticker between BB and FD clamp. The Easton Elite sticker is the tubing sticker.

Messaged him, and its most likely already gone. 3 people in front of me to view tmw. Im 4th, but I will buy regardless.

Plenty of much nicer Aussie built bicycles all over Gumtree.

The ugliest god damned Kennedy frame I've ever laid my eyes on, but you guys seem to like alucrackium sooo... :roll:
Kennedy

58cm :?: Jim Bundy w/ 105 :?: :
Bundy

60cm Triple Triangle Kenevans with Campag. Shame about that price. Also, what is that internal cable lip on the seat tube for? I've seen them on Rando bikes for the rear cantilever brake, but that?..
Kenevans

54 sq De Carlo track bicycle, damn beautiful and a fair price.
De Carlo

Whitehorn 60's racer.

Keith Davis built touring bicycle. My size. Waiting for it to drop a zero. 8) Waiting...waiting...

You have the gumtree-fu lugnut, some lovely bikes there. The de Carlo is awesome and the white horn is superbe amongst the other bling.

Dunno, it's definitely a Kuwahara headset and the crown fork lug looks very like the one on the Apollo IV I saw the other day. The only thing that looks slightly different is the shape of the above bottom bracket cable guides, which could be because of the respray.

That does it! I've had enough internet for this week. See you all on monday.
I like how he left the brake calipers on despite removing the cables and brake levers.

Also somebody tell me if that Keith Davis really does drop a 0 :wink:

So the black overspray on the inside of the left fork leg wasn't what turned you off?

Priced about right at start price or a little above. Would make a great daily.

Aren't these one of the first carbon fiber tubed frames with alu lugs? Referring to the Look.

That's actually carbon too. I was gonna bid on it one time, but he ended it early. I message him asking what's up with that, with the reply being that it needed work. The pics are still the same as before but the price is now much more(last time it was about $100).
