One of my mates just picked this up , only 302 frames built, needs a bit of a tidy up but runs great.

Will post some soon, since that pic the exhaust has been replaced and most engine covers have been replaced with period finned ones off a couple of my old motors, it's looking pretty good

The tank holds 4.5 gall.all alloy the frame takes up a lot of space

Hey Flarris, nope - still getting parts together... picked up a 4 leader for the front.
Think I need an oil tank and some sort of extended swingarm - any one know any easy fits, preferably a box section one.

School me, is the appeal of the frame the fact that it's chromed?

I like that tank, it reminds me of the tank on my RD.

Seely was a factory race supplier. Kind of like Tracy, Framecrafters, and Rickman

looks like nickle and those frames are way stronger than a stocker. i also wanna say the frames are brazed together too but not exactly sure.

I'M ON THE LOOK OUT FOR A OLD ROADRACE FRAME, SO IF ANYONE COMES ACROSS ONE PLEEAAASSSSSEEE LET ME KNOW

That stuff is usually bronze welded, wihich isn't quite the same thing as brazing.

Tube is almost always seamless. Bright nickel plating was used because where many of the race frames were made of Reynolds 531, there were concerns with hydrogen embrittlement, besides which nickel "throws" into the corners better than chrome does.

Plating was used in preference to paint as it shows cracks almost immediately, whereas paint can conceal them for a while.

People got used to the "look" and so later road frames made from CDS/CFS mild steel tube which shouldn't have hydrogen embrittlement problems, were nickel plated too.

There's a whole replica frame industry over here, and it's surprising what you can get.

I used to work for these guys...

Wasp Motorcycles (http://wasp-motorcycles.tripod.com/id2.html)

Robbie still makes Rickman Mk3 Metisse frames and kits, as well as his own stuff.

I know these guys too....

There's others.
