They're workhorses but not 531 tubing or anything illustrious like that. As it is I'd estimate between £30 - £50 on the bay and probably slightly less at local Car Boot.

But....

Take off gears, guards, rack and replace rear hub with a fixed one, put on a tan Charge Spoon saddle then list it as "Fixie" on the bay.... it'll triple in price.

Yeh new it weren't 531 etc. It's actually my dads bike but he bought a new mtb so was wondering what he might get for it. :wink:

Think I might pinch it off of him and clean it up and but it on ebay.
