Not a Kypo, most likely a Hillman based on the fork crown H engravings and four digit serial number.

Possibly repaired and painted by Rob.

Also, ch-ching!

Pretty ordinary photos and not much detail, but this would be worth a punt, if just for the parts https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/116062841614

First thing that popped up on ebay was this vintage mtb - softride beam & stem + spinergy 8 spoke wheels. Definitely looking for a niche buyer with an asking price of $2,000

Good luck getting those prices. Meanwhile I barely get any interest in a Bundy-built track bike complete for $300.

There is a decent Kenevans Track on FB for $300 too. I would have grabbed it but it's a 5 hr round trip.

Don't think it's a Calango :wink:, but the crimped tubes hint at something interesting: https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/northbr ... 1322433455

Some half decent pictures would help immensely.

Someone got an extraordinary score there, a carbon/alu Zullo with Campag group for $20.50 :shock:
