Thorn Brevet 'Special Edition' for sale
« on: May 04, 2021, 11:29:55 AM »
Hi all...  I'm looking at finally letting go of my Brevet SE as despite best intentions, marriage / family (and age), has determined it really deserves a new owner who will use it as it deserves.  A unique bike, bought from SJS in the late 90's.  A Lee Cooper build (serial No prefixed with LA), this full frame Reynolds 531 has the SE tri-colour paint job.  Built bespoke but I'm 6'3" with 35" inside leg - so reckon around the 60cm frame size in today's money..!  Running gear specced in all the right places, Mavic MA40 rims on XTR hubs / XT Crankset with 105 27 speed STI (Ultegra front shifter).  Brooks 'swift' titanium saddle (though may retain that as now a very hard to replace..) / Blackburn MTN rear rack / inline pump and so on.... 

So hopefully as can be seen, the good money spent in all the right areas and a very handsome machine to boot.  Total mileage since new less than 2k (completed the Malin to Mizen route and some training rides but that aside, last 20 years life in the garage....).

Am about to put it on the normal sites for sale - but if anyone in the forum wants the 1st shout for this unique bike then by all means just give me a shout.  Either way, hope you like the shots of what is a great looker (ok, so I'm biased but hey  :-)
