I'll take the cranks when you off load them. Most desirable part on it....... :D

Very nice find! I have a 'Spear Point' model track Gillott, they were one of the best London builders/shops until the shop was sold in the 60's.
Tricky to see details of the pulley in the photo but given its position I would say the pulley is there to 'turn' a gear wire for the rear derailleur, not a Sturmey hub gear. Using pulleys instead of guides for this task was quite common with British builders in the 50's and early 60's, often seen on Claud Butlers and Holdsworths.

Thanks Richard. I should have known that having had a similar fitting on an early 60s bike. I have seen pics of a Gillott with the same pulley fitted to a SA hub, but that may not have been correct either. I have a rod operated Benelux FD although may just go 4 or 5 speed, but will need to find a suitable RD and shifter. I have a suitable crankset and a pair of rims, but not much else.

Cheers

Over priced for a Campagnolo Triomphe equipped bike.

A nice frame that unfortunately has none of the original parts other then the syncro shifters.
