Can anyone tell me about this frame?
« on: January 15, 2022, 05:03 PM »
I found across this frame in my attic and would like to know more about it before I put it up for sale. No idea of the age and no parts or documentation with it. I'm not even sure if the chrome is original or aftermarket. There are no decals and the only identifying features are the word 'Aero' just below the seat and the serial number F4099021. Hopefully the attached photos will help.
Thanks in advance.

Looks like an Aero Reflex

100 percent agree, I built one in August. Excellent quality frame,  they pop on on eBay quite often.

It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. Miss you loads Dad

Aero Reflex

Cheap freestyler. Ride ok but fixed standers at the rear were a pain in the arse. Many people cut them off.
Who wants to ride with Eddie Fiola?

Thank you everyone for identifying the frame for me. I love my 80's and 90's bikes but they tend to have bigger wheels and 531 tubing.

Yep nice frames and even nicer forks that a few years ago were readily available for 20 pounds a pop in the box!  :shocked:   If  I remember correctly a few people bought a few at a time  :daumenhoch:  now when they come up there going for ?2-300 quid  :daumenhoch: bloody inflation  ::) ;)

As above Aero Reflex. Really well made F & F in my opinion. For anyone who says old school has got too expensive  & is out of the grasp of normal folk, this is a great F& F at a great price. Generally under ?300.00  fistblump
