EG Bates 58cm Time Trial Reynolds 531

EG Bates 58cm Time Trial Reynolds 531

Regular price £245.00 Sale

This lovely time trial frame has some nice details, that typify a machine of this era. The Prugnat lugs are very cleanly filed and feature beautiful cut out windows on the head tube. The fastback seat stay cluster is super clean and oh so period! There is only one downtube shifter boss, for the rear mech only. Overall the frame is excellent condition, however there are a couple of patches of surface rust on the top tube. The downtube decals has flaked away on both sides, but replacements can be readily found. I would like to think the original paint is nice enough to keep, indeed, other than the spots on the top tube its very clean. It has a nice flake to it and polishes up very nicely with a little agitation. One super tt project!
