Frame from the old country

Postby winona_rider » Thu Mar 20, 2008 7:01 pm

hey guise---can anyone tell me about this frame?

it's from a builder in wolverhampton - where my cousins are from and near where my pa and grandfolks grew up.



i don't know if i'll bid - but it sure looks great...
what would you all build on it (if you were rebuilding it)?

the seller took a while to get back to me...but i've finally managed to pay for them and hopefully they'll be here end of next week!

the "wheels" SD75 refers to are mavic G 40's i found on ebay....for the mercier i bought a whiles back (which had freaky tubular tyres that i convinced myself i had to get rid of)

I think the G 40s are basically the same vintage as the tubular rims i got with the bike... so hopefully a perfect match.

It says that the lugs are Benelux with a Nervex bottom bracket, but I think he means that the dropouts are Benelux & the Lugset is Nervex Professional as Benelux didn't make lugs as far as I know, but definately did make dropouts.
They are Nervex Professional head lugs, that's for sure.

If you want something to remind you of home, then this could be the ticket.

Now that's AUSTRALIAN to the core.
