Retro Heaven - Roberts - MTB - Columbus OR - Frame & Forks - 47cm / 18.5 (C-C). This is for a used Chas Roberts, hand-built MTB frame and forkset. It has been professionally refinished by Mario, who finished all of Roberts frames whilst he was still trading, and was likely built by his brother Winston who made pretty much all of the MTB's.
It is made of Columbus Off-Road steel tubing and is utterly beautiful. Please view the additional hi-res image gallery at the bottom of the listing for additional hi-res pictures. The fillet-brazed joints are a work of art. The frame has not been rebuilt since the frame was refinished.There are one or two incredibly minor marks from storage and headset (crown race) removal. It would still be fair to describe it's condition as completely mint. It requires 26" wheels, cantilever or V-brake rim brakes and an old school 1" threaded headset. The gear cable routing is under the b/b, and the rear brake is routed along the top-tube. The gear cable brazings are on the side of the head-tube to avoid cable rub on the head-tube, so this seems to put it as being a likely 92/93 frame onwards. The frame weight for the frame and forks is a svelte 3.05kg. It's hard to work out how the Roberts frame numbering system works, but this is stamped "0415" on the bottom bracket shell. This might mean "1st May 2004", it might not. No-one really seems to know how the system works! Chas has now retired to France, so no more of these are ever going to be built. Grab yourself a rare opportunity to lay your hands on some Roberts hand-made cycle art.
