More than likely from the 1960s, this finely built British road frame has some lovely features underneath the rudimentary pink paint job. The Fischer twin plate flat fork crown was used on track bikes, and ocassionally road bikes, and the seatstays are of a semi-wrapover design where they don't quite go all away across the top of the seat tube. With a pretty low weight and a 27.2 seat post size this is probably built from Reynolds 531, the frame number is an 'M' followed by 5 digits, this implies a reasonably high volume builder, unfortunately we just don't know who!

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this frame is of the correct age, so you won't be disqualified for being a rule breaker!

The frame's been carefully checked by one of our mechanics to confirm the alignment's correct and there's no damage to the threads. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the frame before you buy.
