I'll take the cranks when you off load them. Most desirable part on it.......
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.
pretty 753 pug, someone enlighten me on which campag DT shifters those are please?

Party like it's 1999
Campagnolo, C-Record Syncro?
Ok then, who just snaffled the apollo V in St Lucia Brissy that was posted on gumtree 3 hrs ago I missed it by 15 mins, just spoke to the elderly chap, who didnt realise what he had. It was in perfect condition, $160 I called him and he said to call back in 1/2hr as he was driving, then I got stuck talking to my mother on the phone for ages by the time I called him back it was gonski....argggghh.
When in doubt......mumble.
Quite a few nice bikes materialising at the moment.
nobody saw the $150ono bianchi listed for an hour or so?

nothing extraordinary, but $150?
Thanks for the links gents. Very informative.
Over priced for a Campagnolo Triomphe equipped bike.
A nice frame that unfortunately has none of the original parts other then the syncro shifters.
Just looking at Hilary Stones web site and found this
Also some more bilaminated lug work
i try to not look at that website.
pretty nice huge aero frame, with a dura ace ax seatpost too

Small framed Clamont in Melbourne.
I like that. The tubing is probably Tange Aero.
I agree, looks real nice. If only I was three meters tall!
saw it at the last no frill swap. pretty nice, but defo needs paint. looks like it was painted with a mop.
worth it for the parts alone. fair bet it won't be there for more than an hour or two.

So is a Valodrome where you go trock cycling?
Where *youse* go trock cycling
Oh thank heavens it's too big for me. And at the other end of the country. And way out of my price range .
