    Looks like you have something pretty cool there. photos the the drop outs and lugs from the side will help also. The tubing decal is familiar but I can't place it. The CLB brakes and stronglight...

    Ah, but it was all chrome under the paint to begin with so it would seem the original paint could have been stripped and it was just kept all chrome (which was cool in the early 1970s) and a 1970s...

    All chrome in that period? Is there any chance this was chromed later when things were changed? It seems like someone updated it in the 1970s. For example, there is a shimano crane RD shown in one of...

    I would just remove any loose rust and apply some kind of sticky oil like frame-saver. I use Wurth 2000 or whatever it is... It's in a spray can and is really sticky. The oil will prevent the rust...

    Pre CPSC should be 113.5 mm and post should be 114.5.

    I may have a Gran Sport (the brown one) that will work. Will check this evening if I can remember (not so good at this lately).

    I once say an old raleigh or maybe it was a phillips, can't recall that was spread from less than 120mm to 135mm, there was a large and distinct kink in the driveside seatstay, but the bridge was...

    I forget what they are all called but the top is the frame allignment gauge and below that is a big bending tool. I have those. The one below that I am not familiar with but it looks like a more...

    That's one Bad @$$ basket! Check the rear rub for a date stamp. If it is an SA hub it should have a month and year which will give you a good approximate date of manufacture. It will be fun to haul...

    Might be better off selling frame and group separate. For me, most of the appeal of these bikes was the matching black components, without them it's just another old cannondale (not that old...

    Mountain LX? That is a quirky cool model, perfect for fast commuting. I like it a lot.

    Yes the crown race seat should be 26.4, measure to be sure. a 73 should be 120mm spacing in the back so you would need to cold set the stays to accommodate a 130mm hub. It is possible to muscle a 130...

    I am interested in the Paul brakes, what colour at they?

    Thanks

    That would make sense. The 531 gazelle should be 8/5/8 tubes while the SP/SPX is 9/6/9... I think... I know that my modern thin wall, oversized and shaped TIG welded bikes also accelerate fast, but...

    Are the record hubs still available? Do they take 10 speed cassettes? I might be interested if they do.

    I hear what you are saying about lightweight. I have had SP and SPX bike (never an SL in my size though) and my 531 gazelle is a completely different beast. All are race bikes, but no columbus bike I...

    I ride a 61cm 531 frame daily (granted it is not professional), but with the deep section 28 hole cross wheels I have on it, the ride is harsh to me. I have "build 32 hole wheelset" with nice open...

    this is great WNG, If I may.... the san Juan islands are worth a visit. I would suggest take the Juan de Fuca ferry route out of sydney after you have explored victoria rather than the coho to Port...

    sell the headset for twice what you paid for it, build it and ride it. I do not think that there is a big enough following for these to make the NOS factor add massively to the value.
