You are looking at a truly unique road bike! The original paint job, classic Campy gear, and renowned old-school handmade Bob Jackson frame create a bicycle whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. If you are so inclined you could enjoy this bicycle by simply putting it on display - but it is also an excellent ride as well.
All Campy (Campagnolo Nuovo Record) derailleurs, brakes, hubs- early edition. If you are a collector, local vintage bike aficionados and Campy fans tell me the lack of a stamped year on the rearderailleurpoints to a very early manufacturing date in the Nuovo Record line.
27" wheels with a 23" frame. 531 Reynolds butted tubes, forks and stays. Hard to describe but the frame feels "alive" when you ride it. It provides amazing response from the road but doesn't hammer you when you roll over bumps.
Upgraded rims and tires as well as a more ergonomic saddle. Original pedals. All parts work well - I had regular servicing performed by local bicycle shops. Frame pump seen in some photos are included.
Original paint job! Definitely eye candy for those who love the craftsmanship that went into the earlier Bob Jackson frames...
Inevitable nicks / wear and tear are evident in the pictures. But the paint job is in great shape for its age and the detailed pinstriping and other features are too amazing to paint over. I've had many people stop me during my rides to look at the intricate work completed. Some of the decals are flaking but I understand that it is not difficult to replace those without affecting the original finish.
Some have suggested that a single speed conversion is possible if that's what you're into.
Contact me with any questions.
I've never shipped a bicycle so my estimate is based on some other bike ads I saw. if there are any special requirements based on the shipping destination, please send those to me and I'll post the cost estimate on this thread if its less than the $80 estimate I included. Of course if its picked up locally there is no shipping charge.
