He claims it as 600 Arabesque, but I think Velobase supports me in classing it as 105 Golden Arrow (which I already have, but would like the right cranks from the 600 Arabesque group).
Was there a 600 variant like this?
2014 goal 52000m
Someone in Victoria please
A good score at the right price I guess. Don't whether Viner did tourers though?
Yeah there is a 600 Arabesque crankset, similar but different logo, here on Velobase. http://www.velobase.com/ViewComponent.aspx?ID=af4857bb-c3f8-4016-8a48-a9080ec3d4fb&Enum=115
I have a right side Arabesque crank 160mm length which I might be willing to part with. PM me if you're keen to trade something.
looked nice, but it's gone now
you can pick up decent arabesque cranks for about $50. sometimes less, seldom more.
I have a set, and because i like them i keep my eye out for them, but you must know where to shop because I'd say often more and that $50 is pretty good buying if in good condition. Haven't seen them still attached to a butchered frame before though, so who knows what that does to the price.
Viner did make touring frames amongst the range of things they have produced, still do apparently.
Is that framefinder fruit loop from that locked thread tryin it on again?? http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/norwood/ ... 1008257230
That one looks a lot more like a DeRosa than his did. The angles and clearances look about right for a higher end early 80s bike, anyhow.
That guy was a laugh, I kinda miss him and his fakenagos owned by football players, sold it for a bazillion dollars on gumtree. Shame he was a spiv and not an honest clearer of garages.
As for that "de rosa", lack of clarity in the photos aside, the rear dropouts and fork crown look good quality and the group looks very neat. And there's no mention of football players so it's probably legit
edit: in other news, I've been watching this . Love the history.
Yes, Frame finder, he was a class act. I'm sure he'll regret most of what he said one day.
Ah, nostalgia... I miss his crazy hijinx and goofy posts about stunt pegs and custard.
Fkn Tiny teddies (LOL)
That's a steal.
Not likely, i'm disappointed i didn't get a chance to say my 2 bobs worth, i was honestly quite offended at his attitude.
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.
How much do you think something like that would go for in Aus??
Don't feed the trolls
I would but it's too big for me.
It's been re listed, no one bid on it last time
Probably because he left old school BMX fixie out of the description
whos after this one? price has gone a bit silly and I dont know why? nice old thing but ....? (also not a Speedwell)
