Lot 337: A 1991 Trevor Jarvis 'Flying Gate' lightweight gentleman's bicycle. Made to special order for the vendor, the 26-inch frame is numbered 91434 and features a Cinellicast bottom bracket, centre-pull Brake Bridge for the Mafac centre pull brake, a chain hook on the seat stay, a 4-inch handlebar extension with embossed JH and Super Niavana lugs with 531 tubing. Campagnolo fittings include 'Rally' ten-speed gearing, 'Super Record' headset, pedals with toe clips, PMP Brevettato L-shaped Cranks with a double chain-set, Bluemels 'Club Special' mudguards, Mavic rims with Continental tyres fitted and 17-inch handlebars. Finished in black, the forks, steering crown, rear stays are chromium-plated, and the correct decals and accompanying paperwork completes the assemblage. In practically perfect condition, having for the past 25-years been hanging on a wall in the vendors home, and only completing little more than 50-miles previously. (1)
