Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I'm looking at buying a Viner 1980's track frame from a friend for $225, it is a steel gray and has a campi chainring, dont know what kind of crank, campi seat, and is in good condition. i, however, know nothing about Viner frames and was hoping someone could tell me if this is a good deal. i know he purchased the bike for $100 and invested $50 for the chainring and re-packed the bottom bracket and everything else. if ya know anything about them, or if it is a good deal please tell me. thanks

Viner's still making frames
decent stuff

lots of new road frames at GVHbikes.com

$225 sounds good. could probably sell for closer to $400

A lot of them were made with 531, which makes it a very nice frame.

I have a 70's viner track frame. i have had it for about five years and i am very happy with it. I got mine for 225 complete ( including a bent track handlebar and tubular rims, those went in the parts bin very quickly) Buy it!
