Yup someone did get it
Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
Yup someone did get it
any idea what it is? chromovelato says 'italian' in my book, but i don't know too much about pre 80's.
My partner is in Mexico on university exchange, she was very excited to hear about it. I also asked another friend but he's too busy for a 150k ride. Of course, there is Sheldon's way...
Also for sale in the marketplace for same price. That's the last of the silver campy along with Athena 11, get it while you can. And what a stunning colour.
Mungbean my money is on Aussie made
Will pick it up tomorrow
Early Hoffy is my hope...
Actually that one looks pretty good. What size do you reckon the frame is? I am guessing 56 ...kinda hoping it might be a 54.

superlite is either 53 or 56. that one looks more like 56.
a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest
Oh fairdinkum, someone please go grab that superlite for 50 measley bucks
When in doubt......mumble.
Yeah. Why the stem mounted shifters?
"bike frame Kennards Renalds 501". Given the inability to type Kenevans or Reynolds, I wouldn't put much faith in the description of 58cm. Still to big for me though
I can't tell you too much about Kerry but most of his bikes I have seen were Reynolds. I had some interaction with a car in the late 90s while riding a Gemini Club Ultegra (531C) and I took it to Kerry and he replaced the top tube and forks and it was good as new. At the time he worked out of ABC Bikes at Liverpool.
Nice looking Hillman in Victoria
Why not? They work just fine even if they are desperately untrendy at the moment.
Yes a nice real old quality bike I would say. Pity it's pick up only and I already have three sheds of bikes!
I used to race on a Hillman in the 70's and I still ride a very similar Hillman today which I renovated in 2000. New paint, bearings, chain, rear cluster, cables, bar tape, brake hoods and wheels and away it's gone for another four years and 14,000km so far so good
Perth people, don't know about the price but look closely at horizontal dropouts, nice lugs and non-bang-in headseat. Could be a decent vintage frame behind all those rubbish parts?

I can tell you exactly when I get home...
Anyone have any Joytech hub / Araya 700C wheels they don't need?
I love that font. Great bike.
They work beautifully IME, there's only really one reason why not, if you aren't conscious of where your knees are while pedalling out of the saddle, you can bump the lever and spit the chain off the end of the freewheel. Ask me how I know....
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.
Stem shifters were not cool when I was a kid, there were stories about sudden stops and severe testicular injuries .
Reminiscent of a 1970's Sandman panel wagon. Very cool.
for the kids playing at home:
I'm with you fellas. I have been thinking it's about time that stem shifters got some love. I love riding my boat anchor malvern star sportstar with stem shifters. But I normally see them as seventies or eighties. What is that bike and are the stem shifters original?
