    What can you tell me about Ron Cooper?

    Picked this one up and was wondering if you guys had any experience with one yourself. I'm a sucker for Nervex lugs and it is certainly built well. The top tube is close but the seat tube is a deal (nether-zone) breaker for keeper status. Serial #707, I presume? Size is 63cm CTT X 57cm TT.

    Sixty Fiver has one and LOVES it. What I know I learned reading his posts. He should be here shortly. Nice frame!

    Make sure you footnote Sixty Fiver in your Ebay ad. APA format is acceptable.
    Obeying safety rules is acceptable fun.

    There are a significant number of Cooper bikes in NorCal, because
    there was a shop in the Bay Area that imported and sold them
    and had some sort of link to the man.

    I've got a red one in the project stages that I'm almost ready
    to reassemble. I have never heard much bad about them except
    there was a period of time when there were some BB issues due
    to overpressuring the vise during threading.

    Like 65er, most of the guys I've talked with love them. Classic
    old school UK frame builder. Should be a nice ride when built up.
