I found this on Ebay, snagged it for $60 (with the live cash-back thing and local pickup).
The seller had it mis-listed as a "Type Spirit", but I was able to identify it as a "Sprint" after googling up pictures of another bike
with the top tube markings less worn. The auction identified it as 57cm, and from the 80's.
I don't know if this is a slight mis-measurement or if the frame was actually produced in 1cm increments.
Here's the bike (pics from the auction, I don't have it yet)
I've tried to look through some of the Dutch sites, but I can barely make anything out,
and from what I could understand it would appear the "Sprint" has been produced through a
number of different generations from different materials and with different equipment configurations.
Some of them appeared to indicate that the frame is at least part or possibly full Reynolds 531.
The closest one I've been able to find is this:
Identified as a " '60s Batavus Sprint" by the MSU Used Bike Shop. (Sorry for the size, that's how it is on MSU's server.)
Twenty years is a big difference. Can anyone weigh in one way or the other?
I figured with a Batavus frame and Campy parts I couldn't really go wrong @ $60, but I'd like to know more about this bike.
Manufacturer specifications would be great--comments from anyone who has owned one would be even better.
I'd be especially interested in any useful information on fixing it up--tips, tricks, any sticking points I might not be aware of.
