Picked this up from the original owner and unfortunately, it's a smidge bigger than anticipated and redundant with my Serotta so it needs to find a new home.

This frame is serial # 406 out of about 750 built at the Tim Isaac shop, Match Cycles, most likely by Curt Goodrich. Beautiful nervexish lugs, Reynolds 853 main tubes and 725 stays make for a very light and eye catching ride. Some good info on the bikes and the project can be found in this interview:

Details and geometry for the 60cm frames can be found below, with a few exceptions: Not mentioned are the head tube length (19mm) and rear spacing (130mm), and the seat tube measurement is actually ctc, the ctt measurements comes to 61.5cm. If there is anything else I missed, feel free to ask. The fork is one of the steel/aluminum models that was offered alongside the lugged steel and time carbon options at the original owner choosing.

The paint has typical chips and flaws commiserate with age, please see the pictures in the album for details. The largest of which is a chip in the clear coat on the back side of the seat tube, and the drive side stays have a few chain chips throughout. Having said that, the frame is in wonderful shape overall, no rust, dents or dings to speak of and it really looks great from a few feet away.

I am asking $300 paypal f/f or buyer covers fees plus actual BikeFlights postage for the frame, fork, 1" Campagnolo Record headset and 100mm Cinelli stem. It's not often you come across lugged 853 frames these days, espcially with this kind of shop pedigree. Please see the album at the bottom for more detail pics and let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!

Last bump before I give in to the temptation to build this up myself!
