What Tubing is this?

I really like the look of old school, thin (compared to current product) tubing. What size are the tubes on this Bruce Gordon frame?

It looks like pre-OS standard sized tubing.

Seat Tube: 28.6 mm O.D.

Down Tube: 28.6 mm O.D.

Top Tube: 25.4 mm O.D.

Head Tube: 30.2 mm O.D.

It's impossible to tell from looking at the photo what O.D., cross-section, and taper the stays are.

It is a bike I built for the 2005 Tokyo Handmade Bicycle Show.
I was the first and only American to exhibit.
I was honored to win first prize in its catagory - especially because of the caliber of the other exhibitors, including Nagasawa, Toei, etc.

It is 10 Speed Dura Ace Equipped,
with Rack, Fenders, and Lights
Seat Tube (center to center) - 54cm
Top Tube - 56cm
Stem Length - 11cm

The frame is built with Traditional Reynolds 531 tubing
1" top tube, 1 1/8" down tube and 16mm seatstays.

And if you are interested it is for sale for $7000

There are other Show bikes for sale at my page at:

Bruce Gordon

I really like the detail of the front rack and the toe clips.
