Curtis T1

12 posts in this topic

Took delivery of this the other day and made a start on making it my style already. The colour won’t be staying, wheels may take a while with the current situation and November until rims are hopefully in stock. But will be a nice build hopefully when complete.

I quite like but only for now. Should be wheels are on the way but may need a tyre swap the 2.4 doesn’t seem to squeeze in the rear hopefully 2.35 will do. It will be rollable brakeless this weekend to play with.

I was really tempted by this when I saw it for sale, never owned a Curtis and looked like a cool project. Geo looked pretty good to for some streety stuff. Good luck with it...

I’m not too sure on the year to be honest can’t find a lot out about it. There was a Belgium rider who rode this but not found anything more out. 
it’s looking pretty different now and does hop and spin rather nicely. Waiting on a few bits before I can actually ride it properly. Only a little brakeless play around in the garden so far.

If you email curtis bikes they will be more than happy to help 

Hand built in uk and people would do anything to have a curtis over as they are considered to be one of the best frsme builders around anywhere

A little bit more striping and it’s getting close to being clear coated.

Almost complete. Waiting on the decals and hubs to get the wheels built and then finally ride again. Massive shout to @Addict Ben for sorting the awesome top cap set up, stem and one finger levers.

I am very jealous of that - looks awesome. Very similar to the Leeson (love a raw brazed steel frame) I abused for years prior to the Alias.

Would of like a leeson but this came up and thought I’d give it a go raw and pleased to see the brazing too. Coming along nicely and hopefully rideable by next weekend.
