    Default 1970's Number 11 Richard Sachs Track Frame 57cm

    This is cool. The 11th frame that pal Richard Sachs built. The seat tube is 57cm ctt and the top tube is 58cm ctc. This frame has had several owners but my understanding is that everything is basically as it came in 1975 or so. The tires even hold air. Campagnolo Track group, AVA rims, 3t stem, Cinelli bar, Avocet saddle. This is an awesome bike that would be great in any collection of sachs bikes. Based on condition I don't think this bike has been ridden much. $2050 shipped.

    Thanks Jonathan! I am keen to ride it. But I will get some new wheels made up to store these for the long term.

    I'm also going to get period correct pedals and a Record seat post as well... All in good time.

    Awesomesauce! Bikes are made to ridden, not looked at. Glad it'll get some use.

    Hey Jonathan,

    Bike arrived yesterday. I am yet to pull it out of the box, but I will get it sorted this weekend when I visit Australia's aficionado on all things classic bike related. He is keen to check it out and take some pics. I am going to upgrade the seat post to a NOS Campagnolo post that matches the rest of the bits. Other than that, I'm getting some period style wheels to give it a ride every now and then and leave the originals for show. Cant wait to check it out!
