Frame ID.

Just picked up an incomplete project bike for spare parts and this is the frame that they were on. Just wondering if anyone recognises what it maybe? The heart shape is underneath the down tube.

If it was, then good buying :wink:

You've got a basic roadster frame there, nothing special and probably made from gas-pipe tubing in the 1970/80's. If it was the frame mentioned in the previous post, both the wheels you purchased with it are terrible and you wouldn't want them. Seeing as they will take up valuable space (and wanting to help, that's the sort of person I am) I will pay for immediate postage for them to my house :wink: :wink:

That IS a mighty fine and generous offer you are making. Unfortunately I made an even more generous offer in the ebay thread - page 121 about 1/2 way down :lol: :lol:

Serious though, you picked up a nice set of wheels for a good price.

Hard to tell from the photo, but that heart shape on the downtube is more than likely a common-old brazed-on cable-guide-clamp stop thing-a-ma-jig. Assuming that's a braze-on I'm seeing in that pic, and not a stamped embossing

by the look of the rear frame end its a cheapie, probably Asian made.
