Vintage Assenmacher Road Bike Touring Frame Campagnolo Cinelli Handmade
Up for grabs is a very rare Assenmacher road bike touring frame. If you have never heard of these custom built frames here is a little history. Founded Assenmacher Lightweight Cycles in Mt. Pleasant Michigan in 1973. The Company was originally founded as a small custom bicycle shop utilizing the skills and technology learned while apprenticed in Leeds, England under the tutelage of Dan Foster at Bob Jackson Cycles Ltd. Using and refining these skills the company built a national reputation for solid quality designs and craftsmanship. In 1978 The company moved to Swartz Creek, Michigan and opened a full service retail bicycle shop. There are now three Assenmacher Cycling Centers in the Flint, Michigan area catering to the cycling needs of serious enthusiasts as well as the more modest needs of the general population. A life long cyclist and cycling advocate Matt Assenmacher still designs, builds, repairs and paints custom frames in the Swartz Creek store. His custom bicycle frame designs have won numerous local, state, regional, and national events. In addition Michael Secrest of Flint, Michigan set a world 24 hour record on an Assenmacher Bicycle. This frame starts with classic Reynolds 531 tubing. There is a Cinelli stamp on the bottom of the bottom bracket so I think the lugs were possibly made by Cinelli in Italy and all of the drop outs are Campagnolo. The down tube is very unique in that it has two water bottle cages on the top side and one on the bottom. There are both front and rear rack mounts and all of the drop outs are Campagnolo. The frame measures 59cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube and 60cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat tube. The top tube measures 57cm center to center and the head tube is 16.8cm long. It will take a 125mm rear wheel and 100mm front. The seat post size is 27.2 and it takes an English threaded bottom bracket. The frame and fork together weigh 7 pounds 7 ounces. Overall it is in good condition but it is used and shows normal scruff and scratches for it age. Let me know if you have any other questions and I will do my best to get you the answers.
