Just a quick note of thanks to everyone for their interest. As of this time the 10 spots are spoken for and no more will be made available.

If you were interested in one of the bikes but feel you missed out please contact me and I'll keep your name handy should someone not be able to follow through with their order.

Thanks again. time for me to spend some deep time at the bench.

dave

I assume you mean Mountain Flyer? That was really fun to do.

I wondered how long it would take for someone to remark on the jersey. Any way you cut it they make nice clothes and one of the guys that works there wanted to trade clothing for hard goods so I ended up with that very nice piece of clothing.

Thanks for the comment.

2003 used frameset for sale.

On very rare occasions I come across a used Kirk that needs a home and I do my best to help the owner find one…………in this case a gentleman was cleaning out his father’s home and came across this frameset. He googled the name and got in touch with me and I offered to buy it from him.

This fillet-brazed frameset was built September, 2003 for a rider in Massachusetts and is constructed with Reynolds 725 tubing. The original owner of this frameset went on to buy two more Kirks and still rides one. The tube diameters are what many would call ‘standard sized’ meaning that the top tube is 1” and the seat and down tubes are 1 1/8”. The fork has a 1” threadless steerer and is built with a Cinelli fork crown. The frame dimensions are below – the saddle height and stem length are for reference only so that perspective owners can have an idea of how it might fit. The ideal weight for performance purposes would be in the 130 – 170 lbs range.

The frame has a standard 68 mm English threaded bottom bracket and uses a 130 mm rear hub, a 27.2 seat post, a 1 1/8” clamp-on front derailleur and a 1” threadless headset (included). The largest size tire that will fit is 25 mm.

Upon return to me I checked for any damage or dents and of course checked the alignment of both the frame and fork. Both the frame and fork checked out as they should and show no sign of ever being crashed or abused. There are no dents whatsoever. There are a number of paint chips but no corrosion either inside or out. I do not have access to touch up paint of this color as the painter (Cycle Fantasy) retired a few years after the frame was painted. The frameset presents well and the Celadon green paint has a lovely shine to it.

I’m offering this little bit of history as a frame/fork and King headset combination for $875 as it sits with a fresh treatment of anticorrosion treatment on the inside of all the tubes, new brass adjusters and all fresh bolts. One could also purchase it and have me send it to Joe Bell for a repaint with the paint cost added to the frameset price. I do have a limited supply of the original decals so the frame could be put back in its correct period look or if the new owner wanted the current artwork that is also an option.

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to purchase this frameset and I’ll do my best to get right back to you.

Thanks for looking.

Dave

I think I may have listed a new frame for sale in the wrong spot. Here's a link to it - http://forums.thepaceline.net/showpo...&postcount=364
