Claud Butler Gran Sport 531 Vintage Race Racing Road Bike Bicycle Cycle 22” Frame Teal Blue. Condition is Used. Collection in person only.
This is my late fathers old road bike so has a lot of sentimental value to me but it’s been gathering dust in my mums garden shed so I’ve decided to take it to my place, clean it up and try and find it a new home! It has a lot of memories with it so it’s a bit emotional to be seeing it up for sale and going but I know it’s for a good reason!
Hopefully someone has the knowledge and passion for these vintage road bikes to bring it back to its former glory or even just be able to use the frame or parts from it for their own. I know my dad would have preferred it to have had some use rather than just sit wasting away.
The bike definitely needs two new tyres as these look to have perished over time, plus I don’t have a presta valve pump to inflate them and find out! It may need a service or more! The bike works fine mechanically, although I haven’t tested gear changes on it. I think both wheel rims may need realigning and the brakes adjusting too on both the front and back.
I’ve taken the old tape off the bullhorn handlebars as it was loose and not in great condition. Non-original sprung saddle has a nick in it but my Dads very typically glued this back. It also has a few scuffs on it. The beautiful teal blue frame is actually in very good condition, considering it’s age and has come up well, since cleaning it up! Pedals come with belt up toe hooks too. One handle end plug is missing too unfortunately.

I’m sure there are more features I’m missing here but hopefully the photos show anything I’ve forgotten off the list.
Happy to see this listing out but I’m open to offers, as long as they are not ridiculous. As mentioned, would love this bike to go to a new home and be loved and cared for again. If not, at least used for spares with good intentions.
Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.
