Gotta be a Ricardo Elite right? Tange 900 if so.

but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.

Maybe, maybe not. No identifying decals or marks at all, at all, but very similar to many others. From the same framebuilding stable, without a doubt in my mind given age, relative look, lugs etc

It ain't necessarily so. Ricardo Elites were built with a variety of tubesets according to what was available, clearly. Tange Champion, 900, etc

I'm only new here but gee it's hard when there are no prices.

Don't mean to be picky but it's frustrating for would-be buyers.

Fair comment, you're not being picky at all. I just wasn't sure what was a fair price for the forum and I wasn't looking to gouge the market (like fixters looking for deals on eBay).

I was thinking $50 for frame /forks/ headset and $120 for complete bike minus pedals. but happy to do whatever...

Disclosure: If you're looking for a frame and forks this is good, if you want a complete bike then some of the componentry is quite frankly below par, the bottom bracket is rubbish in my opinion, the wheels are okay but no big deal. That's the truth. If you want to do a fixed gear conversion I'm quite happy to strip and ship with seatpost, headset and the bits you'd need. Hope this helps as an explanation.

To be fair, first rights are with Leigh, then BLU_FZ! then celeste boy...

I'll take the frame and forks etc. Are the other bits easily replaceable. I'm looking at a fixie conversion, so don't need the components and wheels.
