My only hesitation is the 61.5 c-c seat tube. I'd have to run 650 wheels to drop the TT down to a reasonable stand over height.

psa Albert Eisentraut 62cm
 
Excellent condition.??? Fully tuned up. I am the second owner and the first owner raced this in the 1970s. I think this is a model B. Georgetown Cycle Sports (Long Defunct) sold these. Top level workmanship and attention to detail.

If you were to order a modern custom-made frame from his shop I suspect frame alone would be in excess of $4000. Some notes from classic rendezvous below:

Albert Eisentraut acquired an appreciation of hand built bicycles at the elbow of legendary Paramount maker Oscar Wastyn in Chicago, and Albert, in many ways, is the dean of modern (post Korean War) USA custom frame builders. His frames, especially the famous "Model A" frames of the 1960s and 70s, had a special sculptural aesthetic and unorthodoxy in their shaping. This set Eisentraut bicycles apart from the European mimicry that influenced other builders at that time. Albert Eisentraut grew up with cycling in his blood.
Following in his father's footsteps, he began racing in 1955 on the Kenosha Velodrome. He gained an appreciation of hand built bicycles working as a mechanic in the shop of legendary Schwinn Paramount maker Oscar Wastyn in Chicago. According to Albert, Wastyn didn't teach him the craft, "More than anything, I learned from Oscar that one person could make a bicycle by himself."
Albert built his first frame in 1959 in his father's basement aided only by a frame jig that he machined himself. In 1969 he became a full-time frame builder, working for Velo-Sport in Berkeley, CA.
Branching out on his own in 1971, his clients include world class racers George Mount, John Howard, Mike Neel, Tom Prehn, Tom Schuler, Connie Carpenter, Miji Reoch, and Sheila Young.
Albert has also taught dozens his craft; his notable students include Bruce Gordon, Joe Breeze, Skip Hujsak, Mark Nobilette, and Bill Stevenson - making Eisentraut the American godfather of modern day frame building. Albert commented, "The only constant in my life is the forever changing bicycle business."
His sons now work in the shop, "if the frame has the Eisentraut name on it, an Eisentraut had his hands on it".

For sale is a used Colnago C59 frameset in size 54s. This is a mechanical version with caliper brakes. Just got a new Tarmac, so this needs a new home. I am the second owner. It is a light frame that rides great, it just has quite a few paint chips in it now. Includes headset and two seatposts, original Colnago post, and a generic carbon post. I tried my best to get all of the paint chips in the photos, and as you can see, the first owner did their best to touch up some of the bigger chips. There is no damage to the carbon, it is all paint damage. The steerer on the fork has been cut. With the smaller top cover, there is 47mm of steerer available to the top of the expander plug. With the tall cover there is 40mm available.

Asking $980

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Frame: Colnago C59 size 54s (similar to a 57cm standard) - mechanical version
Fork: Colnago C59 tapered - steerer cut down, see above description for available length.
Bottom bracket - English threaded
Rear spacing 130mm - front spacing 100mm
31.6mm seatpost diameter

Thanks for looking!

is this the same one now for $800?

if it were my size...

Just because it has couplers doesn't mean you can't use it as an everyday bike that goes nowhere. If it fits & you like it, don't NOT get it because you won't travel with it.

That is beautiful. Very classic. That front tire valve is driving me crazy. Can someone straighten that out?
