WOW. That looks amazing.
My frame is in a worse shape than yours as far as rust and patina goes.
That is pretty inspiring, I want to get this bike on the road!

Reliving this thread from a while back but just an update.
I have no pics, but I have decided to keep this bike a road bike and am in the process of cleaning the frame and just trying to preserve as much as I can.
Today I scrubbed the wheel's clean and shiny. Cleaned most of the gunk off the frame as well. If anyone has any tips on how to clean the frame without taking it apart it would be appreciated.

I am also very interested in the history of Gordonson Cycles. I have seen a few threads about the company but am eager to learn more. If anyone has any info that would also be appreciated.
Thanks!

Do you have the tools to take the frame apart or don't you? If not a bike shop should be able too. I think Gordonson were made in Perth but I'm not up with the history of bicycles... only Campangolo.

Yeah. Campangolo rules. Just plain classy stuff and, to me anyway, far more exotic than Shinamo.

I hope you weren't drinking anything expensive at the time.

I normally do prefer a swivel, but on this occasion I did put a bolt in, as well as brakes and cables.

Nah, seriously martc101 - she's cleaned up well and looks a good little spinner. Congratulations on a neat project.

I have been given a GORDONSON bike - only just found out that it is one as the decal's are missing. Spoke to the guy who purchased, new in . it had some scratches on it - have had it cleaned a bit and would like to auction it off to raise money for CCIA ride in March.
Any ideas on worth or the right place to advertise it?
