SOLD :Revised Tony Oliver 753ST with PHOTOS tourer 1994 22”

Postby Simon Simpson » 28 Sep 2020, 7:33pm

Complete bike built for me in 1994 by Tony Oliver - five degree slope on top tube - very unusual then. Custom drawn 753 in Super Tourist gauges. So externally they are the diameter tubes were then eg 1” top tube etc The tubes are double butted. from memory this is 1.0mm down to 0.7mm. These were custom drawn , to order , form him by Reynolds in batches. Nobody else was doing this. The chain stays are 18 inches long. That’s long! it aids stability as does the small radius bend on the fork which has a 2 1/4” offset.
The fork blades are 531 : as I recall the standard 753 length is too short for a large clearance fork.
seat angle 73/head 71.


Blue metallic paint job 2014/15 winter. Equivalent to 22inch seat tube - higher at front - 23 inches equivalent at head tube. Tandem diameter 19mm seat stays .

Internal dynamo cable holes
Full front / rear rack braze ons

the campag titanium seatpin is quite a desirable component in itself. If you're wanting to maximise cash, it would make sense to put a £10 alloy seatpin on the bike and sell the campag one separately. More hassle I know, depends if cash is a priority

He'll have to have pictures if he wants to sell it, not many people travelling to Glasgow or anywhere else without.

Tony Oliver was unique and made bikes with some special touches-a real artist albeit a great engineer.I think he was based in Wales,somewhere with multiuple syllables.

Here he is

the pictures need re-sized to post on here

i have new ones taken today but you would need to email me.

Address is above.

It’s a niche market for Tony Oliver’s . Either you know what it is and are interested or not. They were the best thought out and most expensive up built custom bike in those days

I’m happy to send photos . As you might expect i’m in two minds of selling but now is the time. Space and moving on as much a priority as cash but not giving it away.

It comes with a load of stuff inc spare wheels and dynohub wheel.

either text me 07833066301 or email simonsimpson64@icloud.com if you want pictures

Correct, and well said.

"As you might expect i’m in two minds of selling"

I don't blame you!

"but not giving it away" - please don't!!

Tony built me a touring bike in 1995, when I was the CTC's Touring & Development Officer. I still have it and I'll only part with it when I can't ride any more.

Good luck with the sale. I think the price you're asking is more than fair. Whoever gets it will be riding something very special (and rare!)
