Just back from an outing to collect a rather lovely Neil orrell bike
In amazing condition
Very little use evident
Sadly too small for me
Plan to split and sell individually

Also some fantastic surprises in a shopping bag given to me by the gentleman's wife
Her husband passed away some years ago. Built especially for him by Neil.
In the bag i find a lovely 60s Simplex rear mech and Suntour Superbe Pro Rear mech (1st Gen) and some nice small bits

Here are some quick photos before i strip the bike

Anyone interested in the frame or components please let me know
They will be listed here soon
