Description

A piece of our own city here – a professional-quality track bicycle from none other than Berlin’s own Karl-Heinz ‘Kalle’ Lüders. Something of a local legend, Lüders was responsible for building many track and road frames for international riders of all levels and disciplines, road and track, Olympics and Six Days. Lüders built out of his small premises on the Sophie-Charlottenstr. in west Berlin until 2004, when production ceased and the business sold. Lüders’ work remains extremely collectable amongst European collectors in the know, especially as they were rarely built up with anything less than the top componentry of the time. This frameset previously belonged to one particular Herr. Bublitz, who took the time to carefully engrave his name on most of the components. It was used only in the velodrome, and has never seen street use. Crafted from Reynolds 531 steel tubing, the frameset shows off Lüders’ trademark wide chain- and seat-stays, and classic round fork blades with flat fork crown.Wheelset consists of high-flange 36 hole Campagnolo Record Pista hubset, laced, tied and soldered to low profile Weinmann rims. Tubular Continental tyres, in good condition.165mm Campagnolo Record Pista 151BCD crankset, with 52 tooth chainring. The is the older crankset with the reinforced Campagnolo chainring. Real Campagnolo cog on the rear, with no lockring. Wippermann Weiss-Stern track chain – the German track classic! Campagnolo Pista chrome steel headset. 110mm milled Cinelli 1A stem, with aluminium Cinelli ‘double knight’ logo handlebar. Fully-wrapped white cotton handlebar tape. Serial number: 1281117 on the bottom bracket shell – apparently this indicates the 117th frame built, in December 1981, which seems accurate.The frame is in excellent condition, with no dents or cracks. Paint is original. Only flaw is a very small scratch to the pain on the headtube. All components work exactly as they should. Wheels are straight and true, and will be trued again before shipping. Chain and bar tape are new, and tyres hold air. Original Lüders seatpost bolt is a little rounded, but still works. Left in for completeness. Overall the whole bike is in very good condition. We’ve set the bike up according to our taste, with a view to preserving the classic look and style. In saying that, if you would like to make some small changes (saddle, bar tape etc), then often this is possible. We have a large inventory of classic components acquired over the last 13 years and are happy to do our best to accommodate any request. Seat tube c-c: 58cmSeat tube c-t: 59.5cmTop tube c-c: 55.5cmHead tube: 191mmRear spacing: 120mmSeatpost diameter: 26.8mmBottom bracket thread: BSAHeadset: 1″ threadedWheel size: 700cWheelbase: 96.5cmStem length: 110mmHandlebar width c-c: 40cm_____________________If you are looking for a specific item, please feel free to get in touch – we have a wide range of frames, components and accessories in the shop that are yet to be listed online. Pickup is welcomed from our physical shop in Berlin.Any questions?
