British designed, Italian built
I bought this cool bike about 3/4 months ago and, as much as I love it, it is too small (I am usually a 56). I bought it from Honiton Cycle Shop and the owner who is a big Condor stockist fitted the following: new bar tape, new Condor saddle, Condor brake levers, new Mavic tyres and tubes. He also rebuilt the original rims with new spokes - a real labour of love! I have fitted new gear cable for the FD and a new seat post to get more leg room, but the original is still here. The frame is totally original as is the paint work. There is a fair bit of surface rust, but that adds to the appeal. If you want it looking new I can recommend Argos Cycles in Bristol to respray. This really is a fantastic bike and I am sorry to be letting it go, if it was a smidge bigger I would keep it for sure. The price I think reflects the condition but also all the new parts and the fact that you'll be getting a beautiful vintage piece of British designed, Italian built history. Please feel free to ask any questions
