Restoration Criteria

FRAME:  All frames are sandblasted and then hand sanded, their structural integrity checked before being primed. Then the base colour coat is added before new decals are applied and finally two coats of clear lacquer.

COMPONENTS:  All chromed parts that are not in "very good" condition are cleaned and re-plated and likewise any aluminium components that are less than very good have their coating stripped, and are then polished and re-anodised.

All bearings are replaced along with cables, toe clips and straps.
Where "new old stock" parts are used they are listed as NOS.

An opportunity to own a very usable British classic

Firstly go to http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/macleans.html for Maclean history.
This frame has had only one owner prior to coming into my hands and has been rebuilt to a typical specification that would have been used by a roadman in the late 50's and early 60's.
The frame has been totally stripped and repainted and all components have been fully renovated.
