frame builder/repairer in Brisbane

Postby pentlandexile » Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:44 pm

Does anyone know a frame builder who could do handle some simple repairs on an old Reynolds 531 frame in Brisbane?

I picked this bike up the other week but the downtube shifters are seized on and there's also a seized and sheared off drop-out adjuster screw.

The LBS reckons they could drill out the downtube shifter screws but they're not confident about the drop-out screw and suggested a frame builder might be a better bet.

Pics are in the Raleigh Appreciation thread on the retro forum - its the red and black Raleigh TI Comp.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Joe's work is great. Can be a little unreliable answering his phone though.....

My experience was quite different. It was quite a while ago though.
