It's more a case of the seller is being forced by his Mrs to throw out that crappy old bin and wanted to give it one last hurrah. Quite rightly so, as which of you bike tragics has a Campagnolo Super Record Reynolds 531 bin? The stickers have been on there for years actually as long ago the bin was used for ferrying bike parts to swap meets and the like.

No wonder he's sad to see it go ... but it is broken and busted. :cry: And you think the Mrs. would be proud but no, she hangs her head when reading the copy and mentioned the seller has the photoshop skills of a 2 ear old. Chicks !!! :roll:

Dawes tandem in West Perth. Seller's other item is a "moving, must sell" item, could be a good chance to pickup a nice tandem for under a grand.

A mostly unmarked frame with Nervex Lugs and a 'T' on the head tube - anyone got any ideas? Nice frame anyway.

The style of the T looks like Toseland to me.

It is uncommonly nice, be it Tollis or Toseland, I'm thinking the later though.

Somebody buy that now! It looks like a Torpado with a twin plate crown and all the original parts - very desirable.
I'd be in there like a flash except it is so far away.

Damn! That thing is beautiful. You can imagine how good it would look after a wipe down too.
