This sort of thing doesnt happen too often.

Biggleswade car boot sale early this morning.

Sat in the shed for nearly a decade with very little previous use!

A mix of Campagnolo 8spd Avanti/ Mirgage/ Veloce with Miche wheels

It also came with the shoes with the correct Look cleats.

A good size for me too - not sure on the prospects, we'll see how the finances pan out. Obviously I'd like to keep everything I buy, but...

Hmm, "Team Festina Replica" eh? Does it come with somewhere to hide your stash?

At least these decals are not permanent!

Bob Millar once described Virenque as looking like a "frog on a matchbox." Does this have the same effect on you?

Just rebuilt a resprayed one of these for a customer. It had been in an impact with a car and only needed a repaint and a new fork - so not terribly light but pretty indestructible.

I have never found a decent bike at a car boot, I've found some ridiculously cheap wheels and some other components, but never a decent bike. The closest was a Raleigh titanium mtb, but that wasn't all that cheap.
