Root beer color paint. Good conditiion-needs a once over and some bar tape for stoker bar(stoker hand stubs are included too). Hubs have some corrosion on shell, but are super smooth and bulletproof.

Mafac tandem brakes, Suntour bar end shifters, Huret Duopar rear der, Suntour Blue Line front der. Sugino cranksets, Phil Wood wheelset-27", Bontrager tires. Cinelli stem and bar, fillet brazed stoker stem with generic bar. No captain saddle.

Pics to follow later today.

Asking $750. Local pick up only- Morristown, NJ 07960

Do you have any pics? Sounds interesting. And old. Huret is a long time ago for me.

If you like cool bikes- this one's pretty nice too. It's a Raleigh Richmond from the 80's. The ultimate city bike made out of Reynolds 531. I wish it fit me.

Are you selling the Raleigh also? It's a beauty.

Yep, it's for sale. I'll have to measure it, but I thinks it's like a 55-56cm.

How much are you asking for the Raleigh?

I've got a little over $350 in it. I just put a NOS Brooks B66 saddle on it last week that I've been saving for something special like this bike.

Hey thanks for the info. I am interested in knowing the size. The headtube looks small for a 56 but I don't know anything about the geometry of city bikes so I'm ignorant.

I've been to Franklin and bought a Franklinstein mountain bike frame in the early 90s. I've seen a fair number of Franklin frames (a couple of friends have one and I worked in a shop that sold a few).

Finally, I think Franklin built some (all?) of the frames sold by the now-defunct (or just resting?) Cycles Gaansari.

All that to say that Jack Trumbull burns some nice tubes.

The seat tube is a 54cm and the top tube is 56cm. Measurements are c-c.

She's a beauty. It actually fits me and my better half. I wish we had the room for it. :( The price sure is right.
