Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
Bates "Repco" club sport
frame 2542 forks 882 = 3424 ( I expected better but its not much lighter than a Speedwell roadster frame ) I note the 5 Star owners are still too embarrassed to post up
Ozpushies! for ALL Australian made bikes.
"It's only original once"
The lugless 5 star I once had was, from memory , around 2100g. Not bad for a 24" frame, built in 1949!
Just got my Jim Bundy frame back from Peter Bundy, after he brazed in a new set of rear tips. On my none too accurate kitchen scales it came in a 2,000 and 680 for the frame and forks. Not sure of date made or the tube material, but 700C rims and aero levers says late 80s and probably some sort of columbus tubes.
I thought it felt a little lighter, but perhaps that's only in comparison to my Superlite.
