this mornings tip find - no plans yet, just a quick ride out to see what falls off.

You found that at the tip??? :shock: :shock:

LGF, I don't know which makes me feel worse: the idea that somebody could just dump such a perfectly useable bike...

...or the fact that they all seem to end up in your garage! :lol:

Hi, one has just come up on ebay but the frame looks massive.

Cheers fella! I shall check that out -- although as you say, the frame is about right for a member of the Harlem Globetrotters.... :D 8)

[Edit: The frame is probably too big for me, but I've messaged the seller to get an exact size anyway...]
