VINTAGE,EARLY 1960'S FRAMED WOODRUP ROAD CYCLE,frame number 137.
Here is my gorgeous Woodrup road cycle,potentially an early 1960's frame,one of the earliest frames around?
It's in lovely condition with red/white painted frame made from Reynolds 531,period Campagnolo Nuovo Record rear mech and Campagnolo Gran Sport front mech.Mafac centrepull brakes with Mafac levers and hoods.Mavic MA2 rims,a lovely,nicely weathered Brooks saddle,Maillard pedals with toe clips and straps and more recent Shimano bar end,gear shifters.
Recently serviced,it rides beautifully and everything works as it should,it has also benefitted from new tyres and new,dual coloured cotton,handle bar tape in red & white,to complement the frame.
Woodrup cycles originate from Leeds,Yorkshire and were established just after WW2 by Maurice Woodrup.Still going strong today,they have always had a strong reputation for building quality frames & bikes,supplying to many well known riders,including Barry Hoban.
