Austro Daimler Tourer

The 62cm (C-T) A-D popped up on craigslist for $40, but I was responder #2. Well, numero uno never made it, so it is in my garage. I was mainly interested in the rims as I need a set of Weinmann Concave for my Motobecane Grand Touring. However, the frame is Reynolds 531, and the crankset is Avocet triple with granny gear and 6 speed freewheel.

Anyone know the model name and approx value for a reconditioned example with bad paint? The seat tube has two dents at right angle, right below the Reynolds Sticker. Could be from a workstand clamp. Anyway, tapping a seatpost down seemed to pop them out a bit. Wondering if a brass hammer can help roll out the balance of the dents?

You really need a shorter bolt on that back brake.


As for the dents, do a search on frame blocks. Maybe you can find a shop up there with a pair or there may be a tutorial on making some from a hard wood.
