Gordonson track bike - 5 swans

Postby whitty » Sat Jul 21, 2012 10:52 pm

I have an old track bike that looks similar to a swansea 5 swan I saw on here some time. I am wondering if selling it might get me money to buy/build something in my size. I have previously posted pics of it but since then put a brake on it and tried riding it without much luck. It seems very light (compared to bikes I usually ride ie. old ones) but is definitely too small for me and I don't expect the mrs to start riding it.

I'm curious if this would be made by the same company as the swansea bikes but restickered by Gordonson?

Any comments would be appreciated.

Looks like a swansea 5 swan which has been resprayed. Nice bike. If it's not your size and you are looking for a replacement, why not stick it in the "frame doesn't fit" thread and see if someone wants to trade you for something decent.

I'm certainly open to offers. I did get the measurements for someone a while back but I can't seem to find where I put them. I might have to go measure again if I get time this afternoon.

I have had a few PMs regarding the bike and what it is worth. I have no idea, but with anything it is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

I have measured the top tube at 56cm and the seat tube 52.5cm. Both measurements were taken from the centre of the intersection at each end. If there are other measurements that are helpful or if it should be measured another way let me know and I'll get that measurement.
