This is my roberts track bike which took a year to complete. The frame was made by Chas in 1978 at his Penge Road workshop in Anerley. It was made for an aussie 7 day sprint rider so has really thick rear stays stamped with an 'R' at the top.
I have restored the frame to its orginal colours and reproduced the orginal decals, black with a white outline.
The frame has a drilled bottom bracket shell in the shape of an 'R'.

Geometry is tight with massive toe overlap!

Look at that rear stay!
Nice one!

transfers

Hi mrb. I have a couple of Roberts needing early transfers, did you make & can you supply these? are they vinyl or water/spirit type transfers? did you generate the artwork for your supplier& did this inc. the 87 Penge Rd. headbadge?
All the best Jan

Hi Jan

Yes, I created the artwork digitally so that it was an exact match of what was on the orginal bike (including headbadge). Roberts don't have any stock of the old style of transfer but I'll be giving Chas the artwork in the New Year.

TRANSFERS

Hi MRB. Do you know if Chas will be making these available again? if not could you let me have a copy of the file(s) so I can have my own made up. best regards Jan

decals

Hi MRB,

Like workbert I am also after some decals for a chas you can see on my page. Have you forwarded the art work yet? Cheers Tom

Is that the original fork?

Is that the original fork? If not who made that for you? The thing is bitchin, awesome build!

fork

Yep, fork is orginal, it had a small sticker on which said columbus special competition. It was quite badly pitted so I had it re-chromed.
