The as-yet untitled Lance Armstrong biopic, directed by Stephen Frears, is now in post-production, and UK-based bike shop Ultimate Cycles has sourced more than 100 of the bikes used in the film to sell on to the public.

We previously featured some of the Condor bikes made for the film, but there are another 70 or so not made by the British company.

Iain Ferguson of Ultimate Cycles told BikeRadar: “Roughly half the bikes are now listed on ultimatecycles.co.uk and it's a daily project, a very fun one, to get them prepped and ready to go!

“The stock list includes 30-plus Condor Classico and Italia RC bikes painted to look like everything from Merckx to Giant and MBK, 12 Pitangos (used on roof racks in the caravan), 20 Trek 5000 up to Madone, then Pinarello, De Rosa, MBK, Gazelle, Peugeot, Cannondale, Specialized, Fausto Coppi, Giant, Look, Eddy Merckx, Lohber, Lemond. Even mountain bikes from Armstrong’s early career. As you can see it's a bit of a treasure trove.”

Ultimate Cycles will ship the bikes anywhere in the world and any of them can be viewed by appointment.
