1973 Hellenic Spyder



Hellenic Spyder
Tottenham, 1973

This frame features Spyder lugs and Hellenic stays. It has the original paint and Campag NR components, including bar end shifters. Note the placement of the rear brake: many Hellenics fitted center-pull brakes. This one, however, features a side-pull brake, mounted reversed. The saddle is by Ideale. Bar and stem are Cinelli. The hubs are Phil Wood lo-flange. The color scheme is original, purple flam with green flam panels on the head and seat tubes, gold lining.
