SP 7557

Sandra Maclean contacted me after buying this 20.25″ frame from Hilary Stone. It was sold as being built in 1975 and the bottom bracket is stramped with Richard Pike. I contacted Stan’s son, who unfortunately has no record of the frame build. He said…

We cannot verify the information provided other than to say it is a Stan Pike and a very nice example.

Update February 2018:
Sandra  sent me some updated photographs. She said…

Finally the bike SP 7557 is complete. Was going to go all Shimano 70’s Arabesque but reined myself in and went instead for a range of 70’s era components with the exception of the Shimano 600 AX handlebars which were a moment of 80’s weakness on eBay. I love it.

I asked Sandra why she bought a Pike and she replied…

Well, I’m just a sucker for those wrap round seat-stays. I really like the way they look. Big fan of Wally Green so I appreciated the connection to him. I was interested in the fact that this had been built for Stan’s son – or maybe not! I liked that little bit of heritage and history. [Although it can’t be verified, the frame was sold to Sandra as having being built for Stan’s son Richard.] Your website would be part of it too. The more you know about a framebuilder the more interesting they become. And also the fact that he was just such a class framebuilder
