If I ever get the time and opportunity, I’ll take bikes into my wife’s photography studio and pick up the camera to capture the details of these frames. It’s good to get them into an environment where there are no background distractions, the focus is purely on the frame. Because SB3505 is in it’s original livery and in excellent condition, it had to have a turn. After a final polish it was placed on the background, in front of the studio lighting, waiting for its turn in the limelight.
It is so hard to pick out just six frames to showcase my collection, but I think I’ve done it with these. The earliest known SB numbered 753 track frame (once owned by Beryl Burton), an SBDU show frame, a frame ridden by Jan Raas, SB4059 – the frame that started the blog, a 753 Dynaflite (1 of only 25 made) and a beautiful and original 753R with Campagnolo’s 50th Anniversary Super Record group.
