Farleigh Track

Australian built Farleigh by Bob Farley, unknown steel, offered to me cheap in really rough condition with a couple of small dings and some rust etc. Looks pretty early (no serial), Davis Components crown/lugs/bb. Stripped to raw, bead blasted, decals added and finished in plenty of furniture wax. I needed a frame I can get dirty, drop, lock up, ride whatever conditions and not worry too much about ruining it. Parts too nice for a pubbie but they were all sourced cheap and dirty and cleaned up way nicer than expected. Excuse crappy pics, will get better ones later.

Frame:
Farleigh 54ish.

Fork/Headset:
Farleigh round blades, DA-7400 headset.

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Shimano UN54 110mm with DA-7402 172.5mm.

Pedals:
MKS RX-1 with Cadence Bound doubles.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Somafab 17t, Formula lockring, Cycles Underground 48t, Izumi.

Handlebars/Stem:
DA-7400 hidden bolt stem, Cinelli 65 Criterium wrapped with Deda cork.

Saddle/Seatpost:
27.2 DA-7400 post with Selle Italia Mundialita.

Brakes:
not drilled.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Formula TH-20 low flange 3x to Araya CTL-370 with 25c Gatorskins.

  1. Initial
  2. New saddle, straps and tape time!

Current Stage Info:

The brown saddle had worn quicker than I was hoping so a good excuse to upgrade to more comfortable saddle, tape and doubles.
Not massive on coloured tapes and saddles but I think with the raw I can get away with a splash of colour.
Patina coming along really nicely also.

I use 110 but the harder-to-find 107 shares the same drive side spindle length. Both suitable with these cranks.
