More Views


You could be the proud owner of this vintage Proteus Century road bicycle. Hand built in England in the '70s this bike features a Reynolds 531 steel frame with Campagnolo dropouts and high quality classic parts throughout. Perfect for the steel loving rider, this bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


The bike is in very good overall condition and free of bends, crack and corrosion. The dark green paint still has a good luster to it with very few small marks and scratches to be found throughout the bike. The bike appears to be a custom build. Although this bike appears to be ridable nothing has been done to this bicycle and we would recommend a full tune up before riding.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
