I'd love to find a Raleigh Competition frameset/bike (around 58cm/23inch) if someone has one and ready to part with it. Cheers!

1950s Follis berceau for trade.












53cm to top of seat tube. 54 1/2cm theoretical top tube.

For the restoration story look here.

Looking for frameset or project bike 59 to 62 cm center to center. Would really prefer something of similar vintage (1950s to early 1960s) but the chances of finding that may be slim so send me a PM. Let me know what you have.

Thanks,
Brent

@malcala622, are you sure that frame won’t fit you? Have you tried a 56?

I had this one built up and rode it for a bit. The more I rode it the more I felt uncomfortable. I recently tore it down.

edit: Frame is NLA

I have a 53cm Vitus 979 frame and fork and am looking to trade it for another Vitus 979 but in 56cm. Will consider some other comparable frame with a 55.5-56 cm top tube.
Willing to ship. Located in SoCal.

This tiny little Windsor Carrera Sport frame definitely won't fit me. It's a cool looking frame, so I held on to it hoping for an opportunity to build it up for someone with shorter legs than my own. Hasn't happened though, so I'm looking to pass it along. Frankly, I'm not looking for anything in particular at the moment - just thought I'd offer this up in trade for "something interesting" in a 59/60/61-ish size. Whatchagot?



Windsor frames were built in Mexico. Not sure how many models - this is not the famous/infamous Cinelli knockoff.

Wish that were a 56cm. Rode one in college (red also) back when I only had one bike, one guitar. Hard to imagine that limit now, in either area. Anyway, my first good bike.

Motobecane Grand Touring, 57cm center-to-center.
Free to anyone in the SF Bay Area who can pickup.
I've got the bent fork as well. And a RD I can throw in.
Pretty sure it takes English threads. The pedals were English, iirc.

Falcon Bicycle fans & tall people

High Folks,

I was given an Ernie Clements designed Falcon Model 92. It's either late 60s or very early 70s. I really like this style of bike, but this one is way too big for me. ST=24.5/62.5cm TT=23.5/60cm. I usually ride a 56cm square, but depending on configuration, can do as big as 57cm or down to 55cm. Im hoping to find a similar English Frame set in my size range. First choice would be another Falcon Model 92 in similar condition (I really like the wrap over set stays), but Im open to other English brands. I currently have a 64 Holdsworth Typhoon, a 66 Eddie Soens club racer & a Don Farrell touring bike from that era.

This Falcon is complete and looks like all parts except the wheels are original. It has Campy Valentino shifters and derailleurs, Weinnman 999 brakes, a Pivo stem with unbranded Maes bars & a weird cottered crank. Frame is faded and weathered, but has very little surface rust (nothing deep), 531 straight gauge main triangle and Campy dropouts with derailleur hanger. Pix attached.

The only components that Im interested in keeping are the Weinmann brake calipers and what appear to be Union pedals. However, I am only looking for a frame set for trade. The wheels arent worth shipping. I will include the rest of the components in the trade. Basically, anything that will fit in a frame box goes.

Im also willing to add a few $ if the trader has something a bit more upscale.






Cheers, Van
