Vintage bicycle frames for sale

Why build a vintage bicycle?

A vintage bike frame is often a great place to start for a custom build, providing a high quality platform to put your mark on.  Keep it period correct, or go modern; the choice will depend on your budget, aesthetic preferences and riding aspirations. 

 

I have a great selection of high quality steel frames and forks in a range of sizes, or we can find something else if there isn't something here that you're after.

Viner road bike frameset

1970s / 1980s

A beautiful example of this well regarded Swiss brand.  Built using strong Columbus Cromor tubing, this frameset would make a great second bike or commuter.  Paint and decals are immaculate and likely were re-done at some point in its recent history, while the chrome on the forks has some pitting, but may well clean up nicely with some fine steel wool and gentle buffing.  Some lovely lugs and pantographing throughout.

  • Seat tube: 565 mm

  • Head tube: 152mm
