Nigel has sent an excellent set of photos of this tasty machine. It appears to be in very fine original finish. The metallic gold finish is a single colour that works well with the red, light blue lug lining and white top eye double fishtail motif on the full seatstay wrapover.
The geometry, clearances, small fork relief and components indicate a custom build almost certainly for time trialling. Reynolds 531DB tubing. The lugs are Prugnat series 62 D’s with a little extra refinement unless this is another model. The full sloping fork crown is a Cinelli. The reinforced curved seatstay bridge has the classy additional fillets used by the finest builders and which appear on a couple of Major’s ‘best’ bikes. The chainstay bridge is curved. The front of the seat tube has the Durban Road headbadge and gothic script name in white edged black. The script is repeated on the down tube. The braze-ons are top of the top tube outer cable guides, bosses for down tube shifters and bottle cage, cable stops and guides for front and rear derailleurs.
The equipment is top of the range. A full Campagnolo group set, Cinelli bars, stem and saddle. A true classic which I expect Mike H would agree with me only the brake cables need shortening a bit to improve the ‘look’.
