Just a great looking build of a custum built small build US frame from the mid 80's. I wouldn't even hazard a guess on value as nicer US frames frome the 80's have and are going way up in value. Just a great looking bike keep it and don't think about value just ride I bet it is the best riding bike you have ever riden.

hey guys,yes am from the uk (Liverpool). the frame is from ian may cycles that was hand built from reynalds 531 steel by the shop he owned only a few miles from where I live. as far as I have found out he was a pro rider and opened his own business building race bikes in the early 80s. as you can tell I have given it the modern look by using pro lite wheels etc but I used all the campag headset and bottom bracket and brakes.
