Picked this up as it was advertised 10 minutes from my place.

At 15.5" it would always be way too small for me but thought it worth it for the saddle, Rockstars, brake blocks etc. i had only seen a very very poor phone picture before I committed to buy it.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this little beauty.

The down side is that it just seems criminal to butcher it for the parts. I just can't bring myself to do it................

All needs a clean but I guess it will get wrapped and stored in the garage until my 9 year old is big enough to retroride

Ya shortarse lightweight!

I now got images in my mind of you like Krusty the Clown!

How much did you pay for her?

Krusty has a far nicer personality then me.

And a better haircut.

Looks like a proper bike but smaller!! Very nice nick! Mind you I just got a 15.5" 1991 Eldridge for Mrs Wookiee and she is 5ft 6 and has the saddle up only about 3"... One day it will be big enough for my son too (he's only 3 1/2 now!).

Very nice though Mark...getting quite a few now tho! You could start a Marin Museum!
