Identification help

edited May 2014 in Your road bikes
Imholz cycles, St Gallen Switzerland, campagnolo, competition (assume that's a reference to 531c) any thoughts on age components, any knowledge of this company? I know they had a team in the 50's.

Tried google and the usual retrobike fora etc...

    A tyre on the rear would help too :wink:

    That's a proper museum piece H, it suits you.

    PS You're not going to actually buy it?

    Has it earned it's stripes? It would appear so... http://www.pantheonbasel.ch/de/carfinder.html?detailUUID=6022849d-b990-4f92-ac7c-e3bb49514053 if you count indoor cycling.

    Turn them round the other way and have a natural 'Look at me, no hands*' castor.

    He's pretending that he wants to buy it but really he's trying to sell it and wants to know what it's worth :P

    I don't think he'll be happy with that, I suspect he was hoping for more.

    :D

    It is not mine.

    Not buying or selling, not interested in the value, I was just interested to find out who Imholz Cycles were and I also thought someone here would be able to put an approximate year to it, based on components, which might help with finding out more about the company.

    But 3 fiddy sounds fair :twisted:

    2 shillings and sixpence, or should that be 2 schillings and some pfennig ?

    censored off with your sarcasm and tell me from these p-poor photos what type of campagnolo parts are on there and what year you think it might be, or don't you know? :D:D

    And yes I know the bike needs to be in a museum, but then again so does my car and me.

    Who you calling a 'fecker'?, i'll get the mods on to you.

    Croce D'Aune, i'd say early to mid seventies.

    Just shows you can't bullshit a bullshitter.

    I know a man who possibly could help... just hang on, he looks like a Basset hound.

    Nice frame - lugwork, twin-plate fork crown etc means its definetly worth restoring. Lack of braze-ons and componentry suggests 1970s - you will find a letter stamp on the back of the Campagnolo crank that could help with age identification.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

  • Why is there a towel over the saddle, is there a dirty stain or summat?

  • team47bteam47b Posts: 6,424
    Yes a stain, well at least that meant someone got excited over this bike :D

    Personally, I think it's a bit too modern for the OP.

    Nobody tell t47b, but I like that bike. Shame it's in a child's size.
  • team47bteam47b Posts: 6,424
    Yeah it's gonna be a bit of a stretch for me 76cm standover and 53cm top tube.

    Still I got some old platforms left over from the 70's :D
