F W EVANS TOURER/CLUBMANS MACHINE 1935/44 20.5in
Seat Tube (ctt): 20.5in (52cm)
Top Tube (ctc): 22.5in (57cm)
Wheel size: 26 x 1 1/4in
Frame tubing: Reynolds 531 double-butted
F W Evans was founded in 1922 and soon gained an enviable reputation as one of the best and only specialist builder of touring frames though they built racing and clubman’s frames. In 1925 F W Evans patented a rear fork end with screw adjusters and washers on the hub axle. It allowed the wheel to be turned around and replaced in the frame with a different size rear sprocket maintaining exactly the same chain tension. For this he was awarded the CTC Silver Plaque for the greatest improvement in cycle design in 1926. Another early patented feature of his frames was the Evans Direct Lubrication System. Oil ports were provided in the bottom bracket enabling these bearings to be easily oiled with an oil gun. This bike has this feature and the frame is built from BSA fittings – it still has the BSA headclip, chainset and bottom bracket.There’s more I wrote on F W Evans at http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/designs/hsfwevans.html
The frame on this bike dates from the war years – small framebuuilders often continued production of frames during the war years using existing stocks of materials. My guess is that it replaced an accident damaged frame; all the parts date from the early 1930s – c1932 Sturmey-Archer Tricoaster 3-speed hub with back-pedal brake, Constrictor Cobra brake (one of the earliest designs of dual-pivot brakes 55 years before Shimano!), Dunlop 26 x 1 1/4in wheels with enamelled black centres, F W Evans front hub with twin oil ports, BSA chainset, celluloid covered Marsh bars (there was a split in the celluloid which we have covered with black bar tape) and Bluemels Noweight mudguards. The Brooks saddle is more modern but in keeping. Its in very good working condition – the paint is far from perfect and the plating is poor in places but the bike has a wonderful patina – it feels like its old, well used but cared for. The only thing that needs doing is to repair one of the stays on the front mudguard. Really lovely. £595

MAL REES RAMELES 22in 1961
Wonderful Bill Hurlow ornate lugs

Seat Tube (ctt): 22in (56cm)
Top Tube (ctc): 22in (56cm)
Wheel size: 27 x 1 1/4in
Frame tubing: Reynolds 531 double-butted
Seatpost: Campagnolo Record 27.2mm
Bill Hurlow built frames are really rather uncommon – this frame he built for Mal Rees dates from 1962. Bill Hurlow made a name for himself outside of the cycling world as well as within it and is the only framebuilder I know who has been recognised with an obituary in the British Financial Times. It has his signature curved chainstay bridge as well as the gorgeous clean cut fancy lugs which are immaculately brazed. I rate Bill Hurlow as probably one of the top two or three of the post-war British builders – his work is truly beautiful and accurate. A lot more on Mal Rees can be found at: http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/MalRees.html and on Bill Hurlow at: http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/hurlow.html
This bike is exceptionally original – I was told that the paint was original – it isn’t I’m sure but it is probably the original colour scheme. The components are I’m sure original.
The equipment is:
Brooks B17 saddle, Campag Record seatpost
Titan bars and stem
Campagnolo 1st pattern chainset (1958–9) excellent complete with pedal thread blanking caps
Campagnolo Record hubs
Campagnolo Gran Sport gears
Weinmann Alesa 27 x 1 1/4in rims
Weinmann Vainqueur centre-pull brakes
Its in excellent condition with only light wear to all the components and a few small marks to the paint. Considering the value of the frame, the 1st generation Campag chainset and the other components this is a bargain at £1495

Seat Tube (ctc): 52cm (20.5in)
Top Tube (ctc): 54cm (21.25in)
Wheel size: 700C
Frame tubing: Not Known
Seatpost: Internal expanding clamp
André Marcadier started building bikes under his own name in 1951. He quickly established a reputation as a Constructeur builder in France making not only frames but many parts as well. When the cycle trade slowed in the 1960s he turned to building lightweight sports cars but returned to building bikes in the 1970s. There’s lots more on André Marcadier at: http://anciensveloslyonnais.weebly.com/cim--marcadier-andreacute.html
This bike date to the 1970s and features many of his own ideas – beautifully neat and fine fillet brazed tubes – the down tube and seat tube are both ovalised at the bottom bracket as well as a fork crown and rear dropouts of his own manufacture.
The equipment is:
White Turbo saddle, Internal expanding clamp seatpost
Belleri bars and stem
TA chainset excellent
Campagnolo Record hubs
Huret Success gears
Mavic G40 700C clincher rims

Seat Tube (ctc): 54cm (21.25in)
Top Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
Wheel size: 700 Sprints
Frame tubing: Reynolds 531 double butted
ThisBoisis Special French built road bike bike dates I am sure from between 1938 and 1948 but its difficult to be more precise.Its equipped with a Super Champion 4spd Osgear, Lam brakes, Ideale saddle, AVA stemwhich is very typical of a high-end French road bike from this period.

CINELLI SUPER CORSA ROAD BIKE c1957–9 55cm
Seat Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
Top Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
Cinelli road frames are highly revered on account of their excellent quality and forward looking design. This Super Corsa frame dates from about 1957–9 – the head lugs have the forward projections on the side that were removed from the head lug design around 1959–60. This bike is an older restoration which I think uses all the original parts – it has Campagnolo Gran Sport rear gear and large flange Gran Sport hubs of the correct period, steel seatpost, Ideale 80 saddle, Cinelli steel bars and stem, no-name steel chainset with Simplex double rings and Universal Extra brakes. Rims are probably Nisi. £1745

FRED DEAN ROAD BIKE 24in 1961
Seat Tube (ctt): 24in (61cm)
Top Tube (ctc): 22in (56cm)
This Fred Dean road frame built from Prugnat lugs is thought to date from around 1961. Fred Dean frames were built by a number of framebuilders – Tom Board I know built some (I was in his workshop on one occasion when one was brought in for repair), Bill Gray, Brian Packer and I suspect others too. The standard of construction is really very nice. I think this may have been built by Brian Packer as it has a cureved rear brake bridge though I would not be certain as the seatstay wrapover caps are similar to those used by Wally Green… There’s more information on Fred Dean at http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/builders/fred-dean-builders.html
This bike is equipped with Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleurs front and rear, Weinmann 999 centre-pull brakes, Stronglight 49D chainset with TA adaptor chainrings, GB bars and stem and Milremo large flange hubs with Weinmann Alesa 27in rims. Its in very good original condition. £945

CMP ALUMINIUM ROAD BIKE c1979–80 55cm

Seat Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
Top Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
CMP were (are?) a very old established French cycle builder from Lyons – in the 1970s they started experimenting with building aluminium frames. Their first attempts were quite crude but in 1979 they launched a new aluminium frame design which was in reality the French equivalent of the Italian Alan – I think they were built in reasonable numbers – I have seen quite a number on my continental travels and seem to have been supplied to a number of French shops for them to be labelled as their own. See http://anciensveloslyonnais.weebly.com/claudius-masson--mme-cmp.html for more details.
This bike is built with Stronglight chainset, Simplex gears and seatpost, 3TTT bars and stem and CLB brakes and is in excellent condition with no cracks or other problems… Rather unusual. £495

MASI PRESTIGE ROAD BIKE c1985 58cm
Seat Tube (ctc): 58cm (23in)
Top Tube (ctc): 57cm (22.5in)
Of all the Italian framebuilders (and there are lots) four stand out above the rest – Cinelli, Colnago, De Rosa and Masi. Masi built for many of the top professional riders and it is part because of this that his reputation is so strong. This Masi Prestige dates from about 1985 and is Italian built – some Masi frames were built in the USA during the 70s and early 80s… Its a very beautiful frame which I think is in its original paint – its in excellent condition. Its equipped with a mix of Campagnolo Nuovo Record and Super Record components though the brake levers are later C-Record. Bars and stem are Cinelli and the rims Mavic MA40 clincher – the rear one is almost new but the front one shows some wear. £1350

ZEUS ROAD BIKE c1979 54cm
Seat Tube (ctc): 54cm (21.25in)
Top Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
Zeus are best know for their range of high end bike componentry but they also built some beautiful frames… This bike is really very exceptional with first gen Zeus 2000 componentry throughout except for the front derailleur. The seat post and chainsets are both tour de forces – just take a look at the milling… £1145

SOMEC ROAD BIKE 56cm c1982 SHIMANO DURA-ACE AX
Seat Tube (ctc): 56cm (22in)
Top Tube (ctc): 56cm (22in)
Somec was set up in the early 1970s with the sole object of building road frames. There’s more info available at: http://www.somec.com/en/factory/history/
This bike I think dates from 1984 or so. The frame built from Columbus SLX is beautifully detailed with Somec trademark Tulip cutouts to the lugs and beautiful slots to the head tube. It is I think in its original paint. Almost all the parts are Shimano Dura-Ace AX with the exception of the gear and brake levers which are Dura-Ace 7200. The correct Dura-Ace AX pedals will be supplied with the bike. Rims are Mavic SSC. Its in excellent lightly used condition with excellent paint and chrome – there is a small scrape but not dent to the top tube being the only mark of any consequence. Really rather special and ready to ride. £825

PIEMONTESI CAMPAGNOLO PARIS-ROUBAIX ROAD BIKE c1952
Seat Tube (ctc): 54cm (21.25in)
Top Tube (ctc): 56cm (22in)
Campag’s Paris-Roubaix gear was used by Fausto Coppi to win the 1949 Paris–Roubaix race – the gear was named after his win. But shortly afterwards Campagnolo launched the Gran Sport rear derailleur which was to become very successful. It has an Italian leather saddle, Universal brakes, Titan bars and stem and what looks like a FB chainset. It is extremely original apart from the Titan bars and stem and is in beautiful patinated condition. I do not know anything about the framebuilder but its very interesting to note he he used the Cinelli fully sloping fork crown introduced around 1951. And he used some really unusual fancy shaped lugs which have been beautifully filed and brazed. A stunning and very unusual bike. £1295

LE CHEMINEAU TOURING BIKE 1920s–30s
Seat Tube (ctc): 55cm (21.5in)
Top Tube (ctc): 58cm (23in)
Johnny Panel started his Le Chemineau gear in 1911 to bikes made in his own works. This gear could be used with two or three sprockets and which was to prove a favourite with French cycle tourists for the next twenty-five years but was virtually unknown outside France.
This partly complete Le Chemineau bike dates I think from the late 1920s/early 1930s. The frame is of gas welded construction and it has 650B wheels. The bike is missing handlebars and stem, brakes and the toggle chain for the gear. It seems to be in very sound condition and Khaki green colour paint is certainly the correct colour for Le Chemineau bikes. An extremely rare find even in France the Le Chemineau touring bikes were the Alex Singers and Rene Herse of their day being very highly regarded by French cyclotourists. £275
