San Remo Super Respray and Modernising

Fitting modern components to an 80s frame isn’t possible without some work to the frame.  With this frame we widened the rear end to take an 8 speed and above rear wheel and fit a new brake bridge in so allen key type brakes can be fitted.

Combined with the French Blue respray and new transfers, this frame will build up into a great bike which will see many more years service.

This particular frame was our top of the range frameset in the early 1980s, with club cut-out lugs, bottom bracket cut outs and 531 Pro tubing.
