Fancy Frame for Sale



For Sale:
One brand new, never built-up* custom steel 29" frame from Badger Cycles. $700 + Shipping.
This was supposed to be my team bike for the 2007 season. For a variety of reasons, it got to me too late in the season to do me any good. Also, it does not fit me properly. Long story short, this was not the frame I ordered.
My loss is your gain! This frame retails for $1650. I paid $650 for it on a 'pro-deal' and am throwing in the matching team jersey. The frame did not ship with the slider hardware, so I will have to order that separately and it is included in the price. So, for all my stress and aggravation I added an extra $50 to my cost. This is still the lowest price you will ever see for a brand new, never built-up* Badger Custom frame.
Specifics:
Seat Tube: 18" center to center, 20" center to top
Top Tube: 23" center to center
Weight: a hair under 4.5 lbs
Hydraulic hose guides, NO cable guides. This frame is singlespeed only.
Paragon Sliding Dropouts
The frame is in as-new condition. It will be packed in the box in which it arrived on my doorstep.
*Ok, so I sprayed some T-9 in the seat tube and installed a seat post collar and a brand-new Thompson post so I could clamp it in the bike stand. Both were removed without incident.
Feel free to post any comments or questions you might have. I can take pictures of any part of this bike that might interest you.
Cash only for local pick-up or Paypal.
