That's an amazing old bike but Sweden would be unhappy to know that they just lost one of their cities, especially since it's only 40 miles, 65 km north of Stockholm!

At first I thought that they were Thun brand cranks.... Crescent used them on their GAS PIPE Sport 305 model. Astabula style cranks - we used to call them Ash-Tabula - sign of a true POC bike... Ah the bike snob comes out!

A bit modern for some here, but it is handmade by a legendary builder...
...and has Campagnolo.
https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bi...480010866.html

60cm Seven Axiom S titanium road bike Campagnolo 11 speed - $2,400


The run-down:
-Axiom S (straight gauge tubing) 60x60 but looks larger with the long head tube. See build sheet in album. For reference I am 6'3" but it can accommodate someone taller.
-44mm head tube
-Uncut Tapered Enve Road 2.0 fork + Chris King Inset 7 headset
-Mix of Record, Super Record, Chorus 11 speed group
-New bar tape(not my finest wrap job, but not terrible)
-Newish KMC X11SL gold chain
-English BB
-Frame recently refinished with scotch brite and fresh decals applied
-I had to swap out the seatpost/saddle/stem to move to my new incoming whip, so those items are older "placeholders", but are fine to ride.
-Fits up to 28mm tires. Currently has 25mm on. Could benefit from some new tires.
-Wheels are Campy hubs to the best version of Open Pros 32H front/back

Minor heel rub on the drive side crank, slight scratches in clearcoat of rear derailleur, and a scratch on the headset top cap is all I spotted in terms of blemishes.

Want $2400 firm

@52telecaster Perhaps 8hrs to drive to that one in PA is too far?

If so, how about La Crosse, WI? is that closer?

Oh, and they each have nice front racks...

juvela guesses on these kinds of things are frequently better than mine... But... The photo from a 1970's Crescent flyer mentioned the the cranks were their own design. Swedish bike makers often used components like cranks that where different from most Western European bicycle manufacturers from that era.

Here's some information that I found on the Classic Rendezvous website that discusses Swedish Crescent & Monarch bikes:

Classic Rendezvous web site timeline Click on the brand names for more details...

"[Crescent was] originally a USA brand bicycle [in the 1890's.] [Later] Crescent became a Swedish product:

[The] American company Western Wheel Works in Chicago (50,000 bicycles made in 1894) manufactured a more affordable bicycle line named "Crescent". ...these bikes were exported to Sweden via a stockholder company Aktiebolaget Amerikansk Cycle Import, Eli Pettersson & August Lindblad. In 1896 August and Eli imported 6,000 Crescent bicycles. Circa 1907-1908 AB Amerikansk Cycleimport started to produce bicycles with the name Crescent in their own factory in Sweden. It is unclear how they obtained the well known brand [name].

Monark, also known as Cykelfabriken Monark AB and Monark AB, was a Swedish bicycle, moped and motor-cycle manufacturer established in Varberg, Sweden in 1908 by the industrialist Birger Svensson. In 1961, Monark merged with Nymanbolagen (Nyman Compnies), Uppsala, Sweden to form Monark-Crescentbolagen or MCB.

From early 1960s, Crescent and Monark were actually the same bikes but with different colours, decals, badges, etc. They were the dominant brands in Swedish racing and also sold a lot in Norway and Finland. The famous Pettersson brothers, with three consecutive TTT worlds titles 1967-1969 rode these bikes, two of them, Erik and Sture on the orange Crescents while Gösta and Thomas rode the light blue Monarks.

In the late seventies the company marketed Crescent as the top end quality bike while Monark became a budget brand and was out of racing."


So, your HERMES NYMANS VERKSTÄDER (NYMANS WORKSHOP) UPSALA (UPPASALA SWEDEN) has a Crescent pedigree with a long tradition in racing! Congratulations on a GREAT find!




BTW, those cranks look mighty long... 185mm+ ??? The pedals could be either metric of British thread ???
