Hi,

My father in-law had told me about this bike then recently he dug it out of his garage and has passed it on to me. I would like to sell the whole bike but i have not any really idea of what it is worth. So i am writing to you all out there i hope that you will give me an honest idea of price. I believe he said the bike dates from the late 70's ear;y 80's.
I will put some pic up below via the link.

If you're going to chuck it, I'll take it off your hands for pure nostalgia! Drop me a pm if you want to move it on...

Ken Bird had a bike shop in S London when I was a kid. My first racing bike came from there in the late 80's when I was about 10 years old. No idea if the shop is still there or not because I rarely go over that way, but it was good to see the name mentioned on here :)
