selling a frame/fork, fixed gear flip/flop wheelset thats to be built, and assorted knick knacks.

if your thinking of the red-rose/white/blue frameset then yes your correct. well spotted - how'd you guess?

if not i didn't mention anything so not to spam here as i do that too much already :-) of course your welcome to spam for me (no kickbacks !!)

NYC area code, Italian frameset and most of all...Djudd

it could go for a cool price as its a frame that is not known much over here in the states. ive never seen another and have seen all but a few offered in the last few years.

i was planning to strip the paint and decals on it but decency and preservation kinda got the better of my judgement and besides my plans of building it up as a fixie-commuter-allrounder wouldnt have made much sense as it would be stolen in a minute no matter how big the chain or lock.

also finding a Triumph (raleigh) 3 speed needing only a little work (yeah ...that what we all think !!) meant that it wouldn't be used very much and didn't pass the spirito "must have" list. all the parts accumulated for the build will soon be listed if you are keen.

ebay's a funny game though so who knows whether its worth buying or whether its "no name" might make it a score. all monies goes towards a new air conditioner, some castelli bibs and probably some other project that invariably wont see the light of day.

.... hey ... wouldn't it have been easier to spot it by just checking the CR list ebay postings? :-)

I rarely click through on the CR list ebay postings...Djudd

I like to check ebay on my own...sifting through all the worthless stuff and finding the pearls is one of my simple pleasures (though i never bid on anything, I'm hell with the "watch this item" function).
