any help would be cool, i can post more pics if need be,
the skull and the lugs were the only thing not covered in tape.
so many accesories on this bike I thought it may of been a badboy bike with the skull and unlucky 13 on it. the M has wings on it.

thanks guys, i will upload more pics tomorrow, I am going to clean out a farm with over 200 bikes in it all next week, I will put aside the good ones and post pics. going bike hunting tomorrow also. its going to be a big week for this forum. thanks again, if anyone wants anything, let me know what to look for, I just sold 20+ parts (pedals, bars, seats, lights, ect all still in the boxes from burmingham england, phillips pedals and brooks saddles and miller lights new old stock, if I was educated in this a little more I would of got better money for these but if I know brands and things to look for I will be buying the goods.

anything that says 'campagnolo' or 'cinelli' is worth money

anything with pretty lugs are worth money, anything italian is gold, I am thinking of add ons and wheels and things that would of been cool to have in the 40s 50s 60s that I will be finding on the bikes, I found some skidstar gt and speedwell gts bikes that I now find out after selling 5 of them for 15 each that the make a pretty penny online. things like this I want to know, I know pretty lugs and italian sell, I won't leave things like that behind, If someone is looking for something in particular like a shifter or some bars or wheels let me know, the place im going back to has well over 1000 wheels hanging and countless boxes of bits, a collector for 50 years. I have untangled 20 so bikes so far, if you spot something you like in the upcoming photos msg me an offer. I will not have room for all this stuff, after I have done all the picking of what I want If you live in Vic you are welcome to go check it out, her husbands died and she wants it all gone by the end of the year. near geelong.

Stidstars were going for amazing prices. I ebayed a glitter purple GT frame and fork to a young guy in Melbs 18 months ago for $350. Can't help with your frame query though.. :oops: Dibs on anything with an E or Swans on the headtube.

Wish I could ride shotgun on this trip, maybe a local someone from the forum will offer
I'm sure I'm not alone in being interested in the 1000 wheels hanging around... I have a couple of nice fifties frames that are begging for bits, in particular rims/wheels, oh yeah and seatposts.. and .. I'll PM you

Looking forward to the pics

Thinking on this, you really should have one of the Melbourne retro forumites along to help identify stuff, sometimes the most sad, mundane looking bike can turn out ot be an absolute gem :D
I'm sure some of them have PM'ed you by now. Let us know if they haven't.

In the meantime if you want a crash course in what's hot and what's not...
If you need to check a specific component Velobase is a good resource
Looking at the Classic Lightweights site will tune your eye to quality English bikes. I don't know of any comparative resource for Italian bikes but this and this are a start
Reading Racing Bicycles 100 Years of Steel will clue you in to Australian marques. The author and many of the collectors are active on BNA.

I don't understand this at all. They're cheaply made crap... By comparison to what else you can buy for $800, that is.
