Stella SX-73 frame/fork, 54

I have this listed on Chicago CL. Hope thatís not a violation. Offering a slight discount here if anyone is interested.
Durifort tubing, 54 c-t; 54.5 c-c top tube.
Chrome is in great shape, paint isnít. But no dents, and minimal rust.
Comes with BB and headset. Both Stronglight I think. Also a gouged SR seatpost.
Spacing is 120. Huret dropouts, but a clever PO tapped and inserted a stop bolt so basically use whatever RD you want.
I would love to see someone do a repaint, decals, 650b, etc. Or whatever.
$80; buyer pays fees if any + shipping.

Btw I do not have adjuster screws for the dropouts and have been told that they are an uncommon size. Just to sweeten the deal.

Cool frame. I saw that about 30 minutes ago on CL and was disappointed it was several sizes too small for me.

A relevant (and encouraging) thread:

Huret Dropout Adjuster Screws

to which I would ad - thread an insert, not the dropout. I've seen dropouts cracked and broken at the hole, why make it bigger and cut sharp edges inside it?

For anyone interested in buying this. I built one of these up last winter to donate to the local Coop but wish I had kept it. They are pretty dang nice. No real issues finding all the various parts to get it all sorted out. Yellow Jersey was great with coming up with some items that I couldn't find at their site. Just email and tell them what you need. I think this is the same model as mine, someone what covered the gold lug lining with red on mine.

How I sent it to the Coop for sale a fundraising event.


Only photo I took of it fully built up.


Before finishing up with the new chain, housing and cabling.

GLWS!!

Thanks, I remember your thread. Nice restoration. Looks like the same model for sure.
It should be a pretty easy build as the HS and BB are included. I used a honed down Cinelli stem. I could be talked out of that as well for a good price if needed.
It is a cool frame. I am especially partial to the head lugs. If thereís no interest I will likely throw together a city type single speed. But thatís a bike I donít strictly need and I am attempting to scale down.
Fwiw I weighed the frame with headset and BB installed. 7.3 lbs.

I am taking the lack of interest as a sign that I should try to have a bit more fun with this frame.
Mods, feel free to remove thread. Thanks.

I was tempted to buy it and do the same (city bike), but I read that you were hoping it would be restored. Pretty frame though.

Plus I have toooooo mannnnyyy projects in the queue.

I certainly didnít mean that as a stipulation or even an expectation. Just that I thought it would be cool if someone felt like doing it.
Anyway, weíll see how this goes. It could always get relisted after I spend some money on it. 🙄

I think you will likely fall in love with it as a city rider! I am about to build up an AD SLE that way, I think.
