Definition Of A 'Hip Hop Slave Bike'

Currently for sale in London. Very lovely.  


The frameset is now for sale on Ebay, just look here

"Neon Brian Rourke Lo Pro Track Frame (including fork and headset).

Brian Rourke lugged pursuit frame and fork, made with Reynolds 653 tubing, with Brian Rourkes trademark wrapover seat stays. The rear is for a 700c wheel and the dropout spacing is 120mm. The fork takes a 650c (26") wheel and is a standard 100mm spacing. It is also able to do bar spins if that's your thing. Included is a Campagnolo headset, no bottom bracket.

Colours are flourecent yellow and bright green, with black Brian Rourke decals. There is the occasional small mark on the frame, but by and large, the paint work is in amazing condition. Its hard to describe how bright the colours are!

The seattube centre to top is 23", top tube is 22.5". Which translate to roughly a 56cm top tube. The fork blades are 653 as well and drilled for a brake.

And hey, there's even mention of it being 'featured' here... nice.
