Why, of course! High end Apollos! It sure is a similar paint job to the one on im_no_pros Apollo IV, different fork crown and a rear fender mount would indicate slightly lower quality, so perhaps a IV?


a) thats a VI, not a IV and, b) I wish it was mine, I was just posting the pics for a new member :(

Bahaha! I'd love to see the look on his face when he flips the back wheel over from fixie to coast... he'll be pedalling backwards.

^^^^^Happy to act and collect on someones behalf, I have no idea what it is or what to look for....^^^^^^
And I really dont want it for that $$$.
My mate had a frame from ldrcycle. Few rust spots, going to be a fixie. He's doing the right thing, clear coat, warts and all...

Almost worth it for the saddle alone, sure the leather doesn't look great but the frame should clean up nicely. In the first pic the forks look a bit suspect though.

Nice, but, like you, too far away and not enough room.
I don't care if it's a $20 Huffy or a $20k Colnago, if you're riding it, and you're happy, it's a good bike.

Agreed. But the price is a bit steep. I guess he's got to get a little bit of money back.

hahaha just bought this today! For that price I couldn't say no. It apparently has suntour gears and diacompe brakes- google leads me to believe these are alright. Should be interesting once I get my hands on it.

Anyone have any idea what these hubs are? They are SHimano high flange hubs, but its got a UG freehub, which puts me off. It came off a Cecil Walker from prob the 1980s.

There's a few interesting bikes online at the moment.

Seriously Nice Gemini World Randonneur, Primed for a 650b conversion

Clamont Fifteen Hundred, apparently a re stickered Miyata 1000.

Univega 26" BMX. That things kinda cool.

Gazelle Track frame

Raseza Spanish Road Bike. Tempting, a good candidate for a modern road group set.

Gazelle Track frame

=>> I kinda like this BUT "Resprayed by the previous owner"
So what is the Ser No and does it conform with Gazelle Format would want additional measurements, wheel base, centre of crank to centre of rear axle etc. Would also want to put some 700c rims on it and see what you get ie do you need to deflate the tyre to get the rear wheel in and out of the frame...in photo 1 the top tube looks curved in vicinity of the flash reflection could just be the angle/parallax error. Take a straight edge with you.
