Nice work! :-D

Any markings on the tyres to show you what size you'll need?

New purchase / build.
My uncle rode with Coppi in the 50's in the six day races, and in the 60s Fausto gave him Coppi track bikes to use. Ive always wanted a Coppi bike. Plus, you know, Fausto was the $hit ....

After a long protracted search I finally found it. Bought as frame only from Belgium.
Hope you like it I do.

She doesn't look to be anything flash. The horizontal dropouts make her perfect for a fixie. The brake calipers look to have plenty of adjustment to throw on 700c wheels and ditch those 27s. A cheap crankset & BB, cheaps fixed wheels, ditch rear brake and you're done :mrgreen:

After the huge search found out that it's a Healing road bicycle from around 1930 to 1940 so I'm gonna be adding my own design doing it in green and gold should be completed by today next week if everything goes smooth with parts an all will keep you's all updated

Nice one QV, I am guessing you paid a lot less than the $1,000 we were laughing about

I doubt it's older than the early 1960's. The head and set angle plus clearances are not of the 1930s/1940s. Nor is the headset cup arrangement The lugs you describe were common to many Australian builders. The bidon cage mounts are likely a later add on it would seem. My guess is that it's an Australian made frame of unknown make from the 1960s to perhaps the early 1970s which has been modified by later bidon cage add ons. The parts are fairly random and tell us nothing apart from either a rebuild in the 1980's or just bitsa updates in the past.

I have an old racer that is called a Century with clover leaf lugs.have never seen such an ornate frame yet as what I have owned for past 45
yrs.have no clue how to post pics.
I was given bike when a lad of 15
I would like to return to some form of originality as fitted all alloy fittings back in late 70,s.
Was set up as a track racer.
If can advise how to attach pictures without having to go through all that photo bucket mumbo jumbo will gladly post.Thanks Ian.

I went a bought a cheap and ugly frame to use as a commuter. It came with a Look carbon fork, 3ttt integrated aero bars, 8/9s Record cranks with BB, and RSX bits. I swapped in some other random aero fork and chucked it together with whatever I had on hand. I would've run a full 5500 group, but I didnt have any Octalink crankbolts, so couldnt use my 9s 105 cranks, the hoods were sticky, and I didnt have any 9s cassettes lying around.
Image

At first, I didn't think much of the frame. There were suggestions of it being a Kennedy or a TiSports/Teschner built frame, and going off the frame design and construction quality, it definitely looks like custom built aluminium. Then, this Kennedy popped up on eBay. It looks like my frame could well be a Kennedy. Other than the rear entry droupouts and the position of the bottle mounts, it is identical to mine.

Picked this Condor frame up in Sydney. My size and rides great. I am thinking it is was built around mid 70s due to the cable stops and cable guides brazed onto the frame for bar end changers. Still has the original paint and in good order

Very nice. I've always wanted a Condor race frame. Dunno why, just one of those things.

That Condor looks very period original. I'd agree with the early 1970's. I visited the shop in London, spent a couple of hours there but could only afford to buy a Condor musette (cycling bag). :(
