This classic 1965 Ian C. Reid was built in the current Perth based owner's home town in Northamptonshire, UK. It was originally built for Roger Watson, a racer with the Mid Devon Road Club.
Ian Reid was a top level cyclist and participated in seven Tour of Britain during the 1960s and went in to business in 1962 with Roy Cottingham, a fellow racing cyclist, to build and sell custom built cycle frames. This beautiful example was built in March 1965 and painted by Ian himself.
It is completely original and features chromed hand-cut lugs and is fitted with first-generation Campagnolo Record cranks, derailleurs and hubs, MAFAC brakes, MAVIC tubular rims and of course a Brooks Professional saddle. Ian only made a small number of frames. He still has the last one he built in 1967.
