James contacted me and said…
I have just acquired what I am certain to be another Stan Pike frame. Another small frame sadly, but badged as a Tom Avon.
Ishiwata Record Breaker commonly known as Ishiwata 017.
Seat Tube: C-T. 55cm/ 21.5″
Top Tube: C-C. 53.5cm/21″
Chain Stay: C-C. 39.5cm/15.5″
Wheel Base: C-C. 94cm/37″
Rear spacing: 120mm
Head Tube: 12cm
Weight: 4lbs 13oz
A proper ‘testers’ frame, ultra light and ultra tight and braze on for single lever only.
I sent the photographs to Stan’s son and he replied…
Regret I cannot find a record of this one, but this is definitely a Stan Pike, no doubt. The evidence is throughout in the detail and what a perfect example.
James also owns this lovely Stan Pike frame. Sadly both are too small for him. He would really love a 24″ frame. Do you know of one for sale?
