NEW Vintage Bates Volante Bicycle 57cm Fitted with NEW Campagnolo Chorus, Brooks, Cinelli  Equipment…Never Ridden

 

 

 

NEW Bates Volante Diamond Jubilee Limited Edition (no6) 57cm Built from the original fittings around 30 years ago with Reynolds Cantiflex Tubing, Diadrant Forks, Bates mudguard fittings etc by the legendary Ron Cooper and finished with a personal seat tube lug embellishment (KL)…This bike was built for a customer local to myself a Mr Ken Lee and hung on his wall and never used…It has been stripped, cleaned and set up (it had been coated with a protective film).

 

It is a rare item and certainly one for a serious collector of fine cycling history

I have enclosed an article from “Classic Lightweights UK”

“The company continued to build its Cantiflex frames in a very small way throughout the 1960s. When Horace Bates died in 1968 his son Peter carried on with the business and Bates Cantiflex frames were produced in small numbers until the late 1980s. In the early 1990s Peter Bates decided that it was time to retire and this might have spelt the end of the line for the famous Bates Cycles. However, the design rights for the Bates Cantiflex frame and Diadrant forks were acquired by Ray Etherton who arranged for master frame builder Ron Cooper (who was at one time head frame builder at Gillotts and who later built top quality lightweights under his own name) to continue to build Cantiflex frames to order.

In 2001, the production of new Bates Cantiflex frames was taken over by Martin Coopland of Classic Bikes, based in Scotland. The frames are still built by the hand of Ron Cooper while Martin Coopland handles the finishing work and the admin between order and delivery. Thus, the long tradition of Cantiflex frames continues right up until the present day. Indeed, the latest Bates Volante frameset with its Cantiflex frame tubes and intricate lugwork is as much a work of beauty as the original Bates frames of more than half a century ago” .
