KENISTONS of ROMFORD model GIRO 23″ centre-top. I saw a pic and road test of one of these in the ‘Comic’ dated July 18th 1964 by Roger St.Pierre. Having then just left school and owning a mere sports bike, the write-up of this one left a lasting impression. The components may well be what one might have really wanted but probably could not afford most of 60 years ago, which is of course the main motive behind the current retro movement. I had a set of Mafac Racers NOS as opposed to Universal c/pulls on the test bike. I have ridden it about 3 miles to test the brakes & gears. Price £1500.00
CAMPAGNOLO RECORD HEADSET NOS, the early Strada version that later became NR Pista with unlettered faces
CAMPAGNOLO RECORD REAR MECH AND FRONT MECH BOTH NOS, front mech with outer casing stop and the die-cast arms, not alloy, that suspend the chain cage
CAMPAGNOLO HANDLEBAR CONTROL LEVERS/BAR END SHIFTERS & RED CAMPA RUBBERS
CAMPAGNOLO RECORD CHAINSET 151bcd, 170mm cranks 44/51 rings secured by unusual chrome plated axle bolts
CAMPAGNOLO TWIN BOLT SEATPOST #1045 AND BROOKS B17 SADDLE. These two items can only be assembled with each other, the saddle having parallel rails for maximum fore and aft adjustment and requires the Campa post with narrow rail clamps. The saddle appears to have been ‘butchered’ as the vogue with the excess leather trimmed off flush with the curved frame at back and around the nose. The extra large copper rivets have been peined over in a rather amateur fashion underneath

TA STEM MOUNTED CABLE GUIDE NOS, never a common or popular accessory which is why I fitted it

BOB JACKSON VULCAN 60cm centre-top. Frame purchased new from BJ April 2016. Record 9sp group 1998/99, the last all silver-alloy equipment before the mass inclusion of carbon fibre bits. Cinelli XA stem & TopErgo 66-42 bars, Cavaliere saddle – because it’s Cinelli and blue, Ambrosio Excellence rims 32/36 – a relatively shallow silver rim, Veloflex tyres, Ciussi Inox bottle cages (now 2), Silca pump – I had one the correct length. I have no compunction using Shimano pedals, I like their shoes with the raised sole so you can walk in them rather than waddle. PRICE £1500.00
Philips childs chain drive trike probably late 1950s? I reconditioned and rebuilt this for the grand-children. It went down extremely well as they had never seen one before. The youngest one will be 12 soon so I guess it has to go. I repainted the frame & other metalwork and even had a genuine Philips narrow BB axle NOS amongst other parts from when I had my shop. Tyres (16″ pneumatic), pedals, chain, freewheel were all new and it was a great success with the nippers. I have seen scruffy non-runners on ebay for this figure, your nips from around age 4 can jump straight on this and go £250.00
