54cm Cuevas Single Speed Bicycle
- After 20 years hanging in the garage, it's time to let someone else appreciate and ride this road-worthy bike. This is an original SS/Track frameset hand made by the master himself, Senor Francisco Cuevas. If you raced in the 70s, 80s and 90s, the Cuevas name badge was synonymous with hand crafted, quality steel builds, one frame at a time. Unfortunately, Mr. Cuevas passed away in 2005 http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cuevas-cycles-founder-dies but his heritage continue to live on through the efforts of his grandson, Fernando.

Condition is 7/10 (not bad for a 30 year bike) as most of the components are period correct. The Reynolds 531 Frameset measures 54cm CTC seat tube, 55cm CTC toptube, painted in the original Blue Imron fade prominent during this period. Each frameset was hand autographed by Mr. Cuevas, a testimony to his painstaking craft. Component list included High Flange Campagnolo hubs, Campagnolo Fluted Seatpost, a rare fillet brazed Cuevas Stem (handmade by his son Andres), 16T Single Speed cogset, 1/2" Track Chain, 44cm Scott LF road bars. It was recently serviced by my LBS and ready for your SS training program or a few loops around Central Park where it saw most of its life. Be Original. Ride an Original. Peace! $700.
