My bikes a Scott Blackstone, Bought for £15, bike's quite old don't know the year of manufacture, sometime in the 90's...?
The bikes great for commuting, quite light 4130 frame, very comfortable and makes easy work of a 20 mile run.
The bikes in pretty good condition very light rust, the only real problem I'm having to deal with right now is the drivetrain. The 8 speed cassette 8th gear has broken [missing 4 teeth] the bike is still rideable, 8th gear is not available through the range
Originally Shimano IG components it's looking like these are no longer made!
I'd like to restore/customize the bike with as much original parts as possible and continue using this bike for a long a possible.
Priority number 1 is the cassette and ultimately a new drivetrain. I was quoted £175 from my local bike shop, quite a high price considering on ebay for sale recently another restored Scott Blackstone sold for £142...
