M.Steel road bike – For Sale

M.Steel is from the north east. As a shop it has actually been around since the late 1800’s, but has only been in the world of making and selling bicycles for about 80 years.

In 1980 Geoff and Dave Yates founded ‘M. Steel Lightweight Cycles Ltd’ so they could manufacture high quality custom steel frames. Not so long after this Joe Waugh came on the scene, at this point he was at the height of his cycling career. Joe acted as a mobile test bed for the company products. The company became established and well respected and managed to  build quality frames right up until 2005 when demand from aluminium bikes meant their business was no longer sustainable. God damn aluminium!

This bike is in very nice original condition. She is a real head turner and comes from a good line of blood.

I am sure she will be snapped up in no time.

Top tube 58 cm, seat tube 60 cm.

She comes rebuilt and fully serviced.

As always pop by or send us an email if you want any more info.
