CLAMONT by G Scott to sell or swap maybe

Postby stevendavid75 » Sun Dec 23, 2007 12:05 pm

Hi there,
I have decided to post this here as it is probably of more interest to people on this particular forum.

I purchased this bike basically for everyhing except the frame, as I only collect Victorian built bikes and it is too small.

I ahvent actually seen the bike, my Dad picked it up and I will be pulling it down next weekend while I am in Victoria ssoooo I am wondering what to do with the frame, Ideally I would love to swap it for a vic built frame or otherwise sell it to someone who will appreciate its quality and value.

It is columbus SL tubing and is around 50cm square, but does have the extension on the seat tube past the top tube.

Ideally I would love to arrange something in the next week or so if anyone is interested as I will either end up leaving it at home or at dads place, both are about 5000km from where I am currently living.
Dad tells me it is in pretty good condition

Here is the link to the bike as for sale on ebay

Let me know if interested
Cheers
SP

Yeah it is pretty small,
At this stage it is going on a blucher but will probably end up on the Ken when ever I move back to vic.

I understand this was built by Geoff Scott,
Decal on top tube says hand built by master frame builder Geoff Scott.
Melody doesnt need a new frame does she? :wink:

Didn't Geoff Scott get busted for building "Columbus SLX" frames out of material that was decidedly not, well... SLX at all?*
