[SOLD] FS: '82 Bernie Mikkelsen Road Special, 60.5cm st c-c x 56.5cm tt c-c: $325

[SOLD] '82 Bernie Mikkelsen Road Special, 60.5cm st c-c x 56.5cm tt c-c: $325 shipped conti USA only; payment via paypal Goods & Services

Frame/fork, seatpost binder bolt, dropout adjusters and painted-to-match Silca frame pump only, I'm keeping the headset. Very clean overall with a few small sc****s and touch-ups. No dents, dings or other structural damage.

Clears 700x28mm, might do 30mm; also made a nifty 650b x 38mm roadster.

Frame/Fork/HS weight: 6.48lbs
ST 72.5-deg, HT 72.5-deg
ST 60.5cm c-c, 61.5cm c-t
TT: 56.5cm c-c
Chainstay: 41.5cm, wheelbase 99.8cm
BB Height 27.8cm/10.9"; bb drop 67mm; standover 87.5cm/34.5"
Rear spacing 126mm; Campy short horizontal drops w/o eyelets

I spoke to Bernie not long after I got this frameset, maybe 10-12yrs ago? Bernie doesn't serialize his framesets, but could narrow down production time based on frame details. He said:
Columbus tubing likely, prob. SP downtube, .9-.6-.9
French cut stay ends = early '80s
Full-sloping internal fork crown = pre-'85

I'm pegging it around '82.

Let me know if you've got any Qs or Cs...

Bump and a price drop, also including the painted-to-match Silca frame pump. Gotta clear some hooks!

This is one of those FS items that I'm glad is just not quite the right size. Certainly is a good-looking frame, and IMO well-priced, too.

I am interested in this F/F. Trying to figure out if my wallet (and garage and wife) is. How would you describe the ride? Is it stable? Twitchy? Something else?

Thanks

edit: looks like I strike out. Neither wallet, garage nor wife approve of the acquisition. Good luck with the sale.

Funny, I was really tempted by this one too. You're just down the street from me, right?

Well...not down the street, but not too far. Just be aware, my dogs don’t like Emperors. 😉
