British bikes I think, a few have popped up now and then.

from the 2 year examples in the archive, this 150 model would be a 1991.
(assumption based on the 0120 is a 90/91 model, I think 1991. the 0210, 0220... are 1992 models)
150 being a higher spec model ? as the 0250 was second to top at around £600

Isn't the point of the scheme to save bikes? Does it need scrapping?
Give it a hack build, you know you want to!

Not criticising, just seems a waste.

We won't have a bb for it, so it gets stripped then scrapped.

I live just outside Bristol.

I'll come and pick it up rather than it be scrapped.

PM me and we'll make arrangements.

Our goal as an organisation is to get bikes into the hands of people who otherwise couldn't afford them through no fault of their own

We have a limited pool of volunteer labour to prepare bikes and large volumes of donated bikes coming in. Unfortunately for some of the bikes, volunteer time is a more valuable resource than a bike that's difficult to turn around and make useful.

Such bikes are stripped of all reusable components, and the minimum amount possible is sent for scrap
