If the top half of its fork [visible in photo #2] is anything to go by, then it'll be a net liability.

Looks like its fork in the third photo :shock:

Edit: didn't read over the page :)

Fork is in third and second. Looks like you only get the rear triangle.

A Pro Tour by the looks of it, I had one of those for a while, it had full GPX. Not a bad bike.

Gee that is nice. That is very nice. ...
There's no way I'd get it to Melbourne though. I think I'll move to Sydney for a whils just for the old bikes that pop up on eBay, everyone seems to have a high end racer parked in the shed. All I ever see in Melbourne is literally thousands of Hillman's and a few Repco Travellers.

No idea what it is, but looks like it's running singles on quality high flange hubs, brooks professional, record seatpost (or zeus copy :lol: ), stronglight cranks, 1st generation dura ace bar end shifters and probably black Dura Ace brakes & headset, and I reckon it might be suntour superbe FD with the clamp pivot as it is. Size, maybe more 60-62cm. Downside it it's been left out in the weather for a while.

Nah, more like 62/63 I'd bet. Big, no doubt. Will be watching.

Lugged steel Giant in Narnagba (its where you get to once you go through the wardrobe in Narangba) - probably a touch overpriced to start with but I'd pay $90 for it...

The description for this one needs to be edited a little, apparently the "button tube has been welded. It is rare to find a bike of this vintage". Should read, "It is rare to find a bike of this vintage with a down tube that has snapped and then been stick welded back together" :shock: .

Nice old 60's track frame for the HILLMAN fans.

Had one a couple of years back when I decided to get back on (retro) roads. Nice enough bike, (CroMoly, but not butted, AFAIK). Pleasant ride, unicrown fork. But yeah, $90 would be the limit.

***********************


Also, anyone know whether this Centurion LeMans is the earlier Hi Tensile tubed one or the later Tange-tubed. Can't see a sticker. Shall ask seller, but may not get the answer I want.

Had one of those pass through my shed a year or two ago, not too bad, wasn't my size though.

Man that's nice.

I like how all the old Pommie frames come in real sizes. Most of the Australian stuff is usually made for midgets. i.e. 22"

It's hard to find a 24" frame here. Especially if you want to ride it and have the right aesthetics and not ride with bandy legs.

A fistfull of post is were it's at. :D
