This just in from Condor:
Initially previewed at Monty Young’s 80th birthday party, the limited edition World Series range was created as a present from Condor Cycles for their founder of the central London bike emporium.
In 1948 Monty Young was conscious that he was doing more than running a shop; he was building a specialist business in a crowded market. From the mid-fifties Monty was out most weekends with the Condor service van, helping at road races around the UK. Many of the riders at these races became his customers and it was from this pool of rider that the Condor racing team would be formed in 1959.
Numerous world champions have been supported by Condor Cycles for over half a century. Olympic medals have been won and national bands have been earned. In celebration of Monty’s 80th birthday, Condor Cycles has created a limited edition range of bicycles called the World Series.
World Series frames are built from modern triple butted steel, but Condor have employed the same artisan techniques that were employed when Monty started building frames at Condor. The traditional round steel tubes and cast lugs have featured on Condor bicycles ever since the doors opened in 1948.
Of the strictly limited 150 framesets produced there are five versions, each featuring a colour of the World Championship rainbow band. The World Series range includes matching World Series Concor saddle by San Marco, with Condor alloy seatpin and colour-matched leather bar tape. The framesets are available with track or road dropout, in 49, 52, 55, 58, and 61cm.
