Excellent racing Kingcycle, this bike has been well maintained and looked after by many members of the club and would be an excellent racing machine.

Details:-
Frame medium 
Unique red fading to yellow paint job
Original KC seat and tailbox (with original key)
Ultra lightweight racing  front fairing - I believe based on a Davies streamliner nose, this fairing very easily attaches / detaches as required.
Magura hydraulic brakes
Front fork includes an elastomer / parallelogram suspension mechanism allowing for minimal front damping of rough surfaces.
Big racing chainrings 57, 51, 38 set up to a 7 speed rear cluster with Shimano Deore mech.
Wheels and frame have been set up to be more standard sizes than original so its on a 559/26" rear (standard wheel)  and 369/17" front (Shimano 105 hub laced radially) this means a much better choice of much better tyres are available than if original KC wheels were still fitted. 

Available to collect / inspect in Huddersfield or could be at Curborough this weekend.

PM me if interested or wanting more photo's - its not going on E-bay but will be appearing on Facebook.

£800.00 ono.

What range of inside leg will it cover? or height?

Not sure, probably upto about 32" inside leg - I'll have a play with adjusting seat tomorrow night and sitting on it to measure.

Just done a quick check I think it would do about 28" (maybe less)  to 32" inside leg - I can pedal it but wouldn't want to race on it as I have 34" inside leg.

If I remember correctly the medium fits 31" leg minimum length, below that it's a small frame. I have a 31" inside leg, 40" X seam and was told that I could ride a small or medium.I was advised to get a medium as it would be easier to sell! I've had it over 25 years now. However a short leg like mine on a medium frame means my knees come very close to the handlebars. So I would say the only way is to try it out unless you are way out of the leg range.
