Columbus Gilco Tubing

I am looking to source a set of Columbus Gilco (or similar) tubes for my next project.

Does anybody have a set, or have knowledge of where / from whom I might source one?

Please advise.

Have you tried calling the good folks in Portland? They only deal with Columbus and don't post everything on-line.

Framebuilder supply isn't going to have any, Gilco was before their time.

Only source most of the time is ebay. Someone is selling some right now.

Please call them.

yes, that shop did open more recent.

However, with several shops closing recently, including the Framebuilder’s school in Portland, they do have some odds and ends.

I pop in there every Monday, I could ask for you and report back.

If you would, I would be grateful. I am in the UK.
