WTB - MEL - 80's Concorde Aquila SLX

Postby simurs4 » Tue Mar 26, 2013 4:32 pm

Hey guys im trying to track down an 80s era Concorde Aquila, preferably a bare frame but would take a complete bike depending on price.
Im after a 54cm frame, ive found a 56cm frame on ebay (even though its an early 90's frame) but im 5'10 and have an inseam of 29" and think it might be too big for me. i have a Scott Foil which is a 54cm frame but the top tube slopes down on that where as the Aquila (as well as most other old frames) are straight. I just fear it might be too big for me, otherwise i would've already snapped it up.
If anyone knows where i could find one i would be very greatful as this is my dream bike and i've wanted to build up one of these as long as i can remember.
Condition of the frame cosmetically doesn't matter just as long as it is free of dents/doesn't have too much rust and is nice and straight as i will be getting it blasted and re-painted.
Cheers for any help! Below is an example pic of one.

I'd trawl NL ebay for a while. Realistically, your chances of finding a 54 though? Dutch people are tall, man...

you're sitting at a computer, right?

Link here

EDIT: Forgive the sarcasm. NL is Nederland. I thought the fact that you're specifically looking for a dutch bike, combined with my mentioning dutch people typically being quite tall might have rung that particular bell.

I trawled Eebay last weekend for concordes...not a lot out there, and very few small ones. I bought a PDM jersey last week and thought the matching frame might be appropriate.

Hi mate,

Have the following up for sale at this Saturdays (13/4) Abbotsford Swap Meet, let me know if you're interested or come along and have a look on the day:

Complete S/S Bike
Concorde Aquila 54cm Paint's a bit rough, but dead straight and no dents
Nitto Stem & Noodle Bars
Dura Ace Calipers with 105 Aero Levers
New Velocity Deep V Wheelset
Mid 80's Sugino Track Cranks
New Re-issue Turbo saddle

Was going to use it as my commuter but stumbled on a cheap BMC Cross Machine instead...
Cheers
