1983 Birmingham Wheels Team Mini
The rarest WHEELS model; one of only 3 known examples and the only known 'T' (for team) stamped example.
Team WHEELS Mini purchased from ex-WHEELS rider Rebecca Maiden (bought off her brother Aeron).
This 'Reynolds 501 Butted' stamped frame also has the early 'T' stamping after the serial number which according to the WHEELS Team Manager Chris Lawther was used to identify team frames. This is the only known existing example with this early feature, and is one of only 3 known surviving WHEELS Minis. It also has extra strengthening washers brazed on the rear brake bridge, as seen on other later team frames.These are larger Minis than you would expect, with a 17.5inch top tube. Extremely light, the rarest of the rare.
Original chrome, repro decals (original head tube decal sourced from Holland).
Included is a period shot of Rebecca racing this very frame!
