  • Tange Double Butted chrome-moly steel tubing
  • Suntour dropouts and fork ends
  • Flat crowned beauty with cantilever brakes
  • This is a frame designed to be ultrastable for the long haul and has enough BB drop to handle well off-road as well.
  • It is geared 40x16 with steel front chainring(no high torque flex)
  • New steel track cog
  • New chain with quick connector for easy cleaning
  • Compact crank 165mm(110 BCD)
  • UN72 cartridge bottom bracket with single chainring bolts
  • Sella San Marco perforated saddle
  • Dimensions are 57.5cm seat tube (center to top)
  • Identical length 57.5cm top tube (center to center)
  • Long chain stays
  • Wheels are 27 inch and in great condition
  • New GT2 27x 1 1/8 rubber

    Hey I've got exactly the same bike here in Brisbane Australia - just getting it sorted out - i've had it since 1987 and did some great touring on it in Tasmania - really looking forward to getting back out there on it again very soon

    cheers Greg
