Had a bit of a score a week or so ago on the Council Clean up.
A Soren son Reynolds 731 frame with 531 forks Weighs in at 2.6kg
Image
A heap of track wheels tublulars and clinchers with Suntour Superbe pro and campag record hubs to name a few
Image
and best of all a Kerry Hopkins track bike which weighs in at 7.4kg without a front tyre. This bike was owned by Kris Denham and from the little research I have done, appears to have raced for Australia. I cant believe what people throw out.

This thread should be banned. Or, at the very least, a requirement to add your LGA alongside the score be added (safe to say BCC and MBRC won't appear very often).

So much goodness.... :(

Yes it was picked up from the side of the road. I was out having a lunch time ride scoping the junk and this is what I found on one pile. I imagine it was quite funny to see a lycra clad roadie riding down the main street of town carrying a bike and a frame over his shoulder- I had dollar signs in my eyes and I werent leaving it there in case someone else picked it up before I could get back.
I am probably not suppose to be spruiking for a sale in this section but there isnt a velodrome within 150km of me so I will be looking at moving this stuff on. Better photos coming soon in the 4 sale section

Good to see you rescued it. By coincidence I was recently given Kris Denham's road TT bike, which I was going to post up shortly. This is also purple (Kris obviously liked purple) and has a "Custom Paint by Kerry Hopkins" sticker. I think it's actually a Geoff Scott/Clamont, repainted by Hopkins. It came with a bodgy wheelset including a Superbe Pro track front wheel.

Cool I would like to see the TT bike photos. Did he put his initials on those wheels as well. I have 4 of the superbe pro back wheels and only one front.

I'll post some images soon.

Curiously the front wheel has a Blackman engraving (Blackman Cycles, Parramatta I guess) with Denham in texta on the rim. The TT bike chainring has his name engraved on it, must have been a big lot of bike thieves about?

PM me if you want to do a swap for road wheels. Be nice to re-unite the TT bike with the correct wheels.

You sure it was council pick-up junk? Maybe someone was moving house and was backing the trailer out, or something? [INSERT SICK-WITH-JEALOUSY EMOTICON HERE]

Here in Syd I once saw a few BSO's last literally less than a minute after being left outside -- there were a couple of parolees stalking the street and one of them thought he'd won the lottery by beating the other guy. :?

Black Head should prepare itself for a sudden influx of cyclists.

One of the back wheels had Blackman written in texta on the rim. It came off when I wiped it though which didnt expect.
I think the campag record hubbed wheel was QR. What road wheels have you got?

Sometimes I hate living in Canberra...
We dont have kerbside collection like everywhere else. We donate bikes to the 2 contracted govermment recyclers , who then turn around and ask $80+ for them...

Ive been lucky with cheap finds lately, so I really shouldnt whinge :roll:
Great score !
When in doubt......mumble.
