Ron Cooper was a legendary master frame builder who first set up his workshop just a few miles from ours. Sadly he died in 2012, which means you simply can't buy bikes like this any longer.
Ron Cooper's frames took two days to build by hand and his care shows in their unique responsiveness and stability at just 9.3kgs.
The rest of this spectacular racing bike has been put together with just as much love and attention to detail. Top notch Campagnolo components make the 12 speed gears fly, while Modolo brake calipers mean you can stop on a sixpence.
Lightweight Aspin wheel rims are built around Campagnolo hubs and topped with Schwalbe Lugano tyres. The overall effect is a beautiful machine that will turn heads, but more importantly will make you fall in love with cycling all over again.
Thanks to its unique history, it could make a centrepiece of a collection, but this bike deserves to be ridden and enjoyed. It's in very good condition for a vintage bike and, with Ron Cooper's steel frame, it will last you (and maybe your kids) a lifetime.
We are honoured to have a bike of this lineage for sale, and excited for the lucky bike-lover who gets their hands on it.
Best For: Serious bike-lover looking for a life-long relationship!
