This a Pegasus Racing bike with Columbus Tubing. Full Golden Arrow 6x2 Groupset with 105 Down tube index Gear shifters.Wheels 700 with Malard Hubs and narrow Weinmann Rims. I cant find any information on this bike. Bought from elderly gentleman . His son bought the bike approx 20 years ago in Germany as a present. Very light and great to ride.[urlDSCF5955_zpsxuxpgmk7.jpgDSCF5958_zps8xvga3xq.jpgDSCF5956_zpsklmrllyp.jpg][/url]

  • Hi. I found a Frame builder 1970s - 1980s Keith Davis. He is a Australian high spec frame builder and his brand was Pegasus. This bike was sold in Germany by a bike shop called Hempelmann Radsport Specialist. Cant explain.

    Unlikely to be any link between a hand builder and this bike. The rear dropouts in the pic look like poor quality stamped steel items, as opposed to the quality cast dropouts you would expect to see on a quality handbuilt. Can't see what the Columbus sticker says, but that should give you an idea of the quality of the tubing used.
  • Many Thanks for the help. Tube label Tretube Aelle Tubi Speciali. I understand its standard columbus tubing.

    German manufacturer, been going about 30 years, which fits the chronology. There doesn't seem to be much information about their older bikes, but they might respond to an email to confirm if it was made by them and maybe answer any questions.
  • Many Thanks . The information help. Will contact them. Izak
