I have another addition to my bike family, a bit of a do-er up-er and all original apart from the front tyre, not bad for a freebie.
A bit small for me but ideal for the wife.

High end, nope

desirable, nope

well built, nope

rides well, probably not


But it's a working bike and you can have some fun on it, that's what it's about having fun isn't it

it cost nowt, you can leave it outside the pub and it won't get nicked whilst you have a few beers

it won't cost much to keep it going

There is no lower I'm afraid. Its a retro BSO - Bicycle shaped object. A cheap and cheerful pastiche of the real thing. Pressed steel parts and a heavy unresponsive frame.

Its not bike snobbery either before anyone starts, its a plain and simple inexpensive mode of transport that will get you from a to b. There are many better ways of doing that...

Look on the bright side; if all the bikes on here were listed alphabetically, yours would be at the top.

Also, if you chain it to the side of your house, no one will be able to steal your house.

:wink:
