That’s right, I’m putting my Bob Jackson Vigorell Track frameset on sale.
Last August, I finally ordered my first track frameset, a custom made frame and fork built by Bob Jackson.
Bob Jackson Cycles of Leeds, UK has been a very respectable framebuilding company known for delivering fine quality bike frames, both road and track, since 1935.Their Vigorelli Track frames are in high demand so building the frameset took a little longer than expected as well as finding the right parts for the bike.
Understand my deep disappointment when in January, after the snow and salt had finally disappeared, I took my Bob for it’s first ride, it proved too big…
All the measurements were done correctly before ordering but appearently my upper body is not as well developed as my lower, meaning that it’s too short for the frame size.
But my “heartache” can give you the opportunity of owning a true Bob Jackson Vigorelli Track frameset, at a very reasonable price!
Here are some details:
Bob Jackson Vigorelli Track 24″ (61cm) steel frame and fork
• Paint finish Metallic Oro Ricco
• Hand built using Reynolds 631 oversize tubing for added rigidity
• Fully cast bottom bracket shell, crown & dropouts (120mm rear dropout spacing)
• Comes with a set of bottle fittings, a seatpost bolt and drilled for a front brake (39-49mm)
• Frameset is capable of taking tyres up to 28mm
• Includes a 5 year guarantee and a bottle of touchup paint
The frame has been reamed and faced by a professional bike shop in order to make the headset and bottom bracket fit, at an additional cost of € 60.
The frameset is in absolute mint condition since I only rode it a few times.
Asking price € 325,- for frame and fork
The pre-installed head set is a 1″ inch NOS Campagnolo Record that I only sell with the frameset for € 35. A brand new Nitto RB-021 bar (not in the pictures) will be for sale as well, like the headset, without any real use. Those could be yours for € 30. Both pretty good deals!
If you are interested, the bike is still built up as shown in the pictures (and there are more, just ask), so you can take it for a spin.
