Hi all,

I have a frame and forks for sale. Will include the headset and bb but these will need repacking.


The seat tube was damaged by the idiot who sold it to me. Not too much but still.

It would make a great rat bike/ commuter.

Asking what I paid after I recieved a partial refund - 30,000 yen.

This was probably made in the 1st month of production at the Merckx factory in 1980.

Collection from Yokohama or can post at cost.

Better to see first though.

Cheers,
James

I have to ask, where is the rest of it?

Anyway, are the brakes and bars and seat part of the deal?

Yes - are you selling it as in the pics? Or just the frame and fork? What BB / HS ? NR? GS? SR? And do you have a pic of the TT damage?

Hi Astuto,

Everything in the pics except the saddle,bars and stem. So brakes (not period but 105, seat post, levers,
front mech, bb, and headset.

It's not TT damage, the previous owner wrestled with the seatpost. It's gouged.Noticeable on close inspection but not major. The seat clamp still does the job.

If it's a rat bike your after I think I have a couple of other stems that are period correct and some bars
maybe.

Cheers,

Alternatively I have a 1975 54cm Brian Rourke FandF that's near perfect for 50,000yen.

Cheers,
J

Hi there,

They look like gran sport headset and bb.

Also the rear was cold set at some point to 130mm (originally 126mm).

If you send me your email I'll send you some pics.

Is that eric?
