About 5 years ago, we did a limited run of 100 Reynolds 853 Prince Albert frames which sold out pretty quickly. We still get a lot of enquiries asking if we still make this frame and have to explain it was only a one-off limited edition thing 5 years ago! The frames are still sought after on the second hand market.
To cut a long story short, we are thinking of doing another run of 853 Prince Alberts in the original colours which the Prince Albert first came out in back in 2004 (red, battleship grey, sky blue, matte black), if there is enough interest in them.
Again, the run will be limited to 100 frames and a deposit will be required to secure the size and colour of choice. As an incentive for pre-ordering/paying a deposit, you will get the new 853 frame for the same price as the current 725 frame (£295 including UK delivery). Any frames which aren’t pre-ordered will then retail for £425.
The order book will remain open until 28th February 2012 and pre-ordered frames will arrive in time for summer.
If interested, please drop us an e-mail with the heading “I’d like an 853 Prince Albert”.
