FS: '76 Strawberry/DiNucci Road Frame/Fork, 61.5st x 57.0tt

Price drop to $1,000.

'76 Strawberry/DiNucci Road frame/fork, 61.5st x 57.0tt: $1,000 pickup/paypal'd NJ metro; conti USA shipping OK with shipping arrangement/payment by buyer. Priced for frame/fork only.

This is an early-ish DiNucci-built Strawberry road frame, confirmed by the serial number and by Mark, on the tallish side at 61.5cm x 57cm. Frame/fork match, but it's not clear if the paint is original, and the Strawberry head badge may be later.

Road/fast angles and geometry with vertical drops, built for short-reach nutted calipers and 700x28mm tires---pinch point is at the chainstays, which I'll delve into soon. The drop dimension is fairly shallow at 60mm, so if you're into weirdness a 650b conversion would probably work OK. I never thought to try that, 650bx32 oughta fit fine, might get to 36mm or so?

As early as this frame is, Mark wasn't more than a few years out of his teens when he built it, you're already seeing a lot of the hallmarks that follow through Mark's builds. The sculpted lugs, with a nearly bikini cut in the rear, the extra brass on the top of the rear lug, and Mark's lines follow from then till now. The chainstay tangs are extra long, extend through the chainstay bridge and then meld into the chainstay crimps. I don't think I've seen that treatment elsewhere. It's very cool, though as a worshipper of maximum tire width, without all that extra tang you'd likely fit at least 30mm rubber between the chainstays. Note also that the chainstay bridge itself is oversize and oval-ish. Not sure if that's a stock piece or something Mark crafted himself.

There's a bonus fairly large Strawberry-shaped cutout underneath the bb shell.

Paint is really nice overall, especially considering the age of the frame. No dents or dings, some chipping around the dropouts with light surface rust visible, some small scattered chips and light scuffs elsewhere. Lots of closeup photos on my flickr album. I'll include one recent build photo for reference. Flickr link here:

Dims are mine:
Frame: 4.69lb/2.13kg; Fork: 1.74lb/0.79kg; FS: 6.43lb/2.92kg

ST 61.5cm c-c; 63.0cm c-t
TT: 57.0cm c-c
Chainstay: 41.0cm
Wheelbase 99.0cm
BB Height: 28.8cm (w/27mm tire)

Happy to answer Qs!

Just a note for anecdotal info, i saw a frame in this exact color scheme but a different size, with red forks like this, but also it had the rear triangle in the same red.
maybe its the colors from a strawberry plant, red and the green leaves???

I remember them from at least as far back as 1977. 1978, Peter Mooney offered vertical dropouts unless you asked for horizontal (which I did to be able to run fix gear).

The somewhat unicorn-ish ‘73 Raleigh RRA came with Campy vertical dropouts.

Beautiful frame, Paul. Glwts!

Already have a similar rough one and a line on another.

We know how rare and special these are so somebody should suck it up and bite down hard on this, the may not come along anytime soon if at all.

A little rich (pun intended , bikingshearer!) for my blood . Tempting as it is and pretty much my size, if a skosh small. Beautiful bike and would build up nicely , period correct or modern. I prefer the Super Record build in the photo myself. GLWTS

Wrong dimensions for me. Seat tube could work, just not pretty, but that top tube! This would be another 180mm stem bike for me. Vanilla/Shacha White could build be a lugged custom stem that looked right but still ... (even if he would sink so low as to make a stem for a competitor's bike). Andy Newman knows me (from visits to his shop, trade shows and spending a lot of time hanging in his immediate neighborhood; usually on one of my city bikes. I could try to drag him out of retirement to build that stem, but nah. (Besides I already have Dave Levey at Ticycles on one project and possibly two more lined up.)
