  2. Raleigh probably 5 speed road bike frame with lugs for pump, rear brake cables, rear derailleur down shifter. Cottered Raleigh cranks with lightweight alloy pedals and unidentified chainring. To which has been fitted: Rear wheel Mavic MA2, rim 7 speed freewheel on a Shimano RX100 hub. Front wheel unknown rim on a Shimano deore XT hub. Both with fitted with Schwalbe Blizzard Sport 700c x 23mm tyres. WIngbar lightweight alloy handlebars on Sakae Custom alloy stem. Buzz Off seat on chrome seat post. Deconstruction springs to mind.

  3. 23” Bates of Westcliffe bicycle. (They made/sold conventional as well as cantiflex/diadrant frames – see , but I’m not sure what model this is.) 23” seat-tube centre to top, Ekla lugs, nice box lining, but quite heavily touched up. TA chain ring, steel cranks, Huret Svelto rear mech, GB bars, Weinmann brakes, basic 700c wheels, Campag copy pedals.

  4. 22.5” Duckett bicycle. Ducketts were a London based lightweight shop operating up to the 1960s — see I would guess the frame dates from the late 1950s. 22.5″ seat-tube centre to top; 22.25″ top-tube. Reynolds 531db with Nervex Professional lugs. Violet metallic paintwork by Argos with some touched up scratches.

  5. Viscount Road Bike serial no. D24179 (possibly 1979). 21″ or 53cm frame. Original supplier Jim Guard Cycle Specialists of Southampton. It has steel forks not the aluminium “Death Forks”. Alloy rims 27 1/4″ rims fitted with Michelen World Tour 27 1/8″ tyres in good condition. Has a small saddle bag containing a basic repair kit including four alloy tyre levers and a dumbell spanner. It is a ride away bike that needs some TLC.

    As you can see in the next photo it has been “improved” by its owners over the years with a variety of components.
