Well, knowing little & aspiring to less, having been put off by the attitude of the seller of the Giant Team 'rep' & to be honest, thinking it a little 'Hard-core' for my intended exercising.......& having decided, for now, to pass on the offer of a "Freebie" Raleigh Panasonic 'Cadet' in need of 'some wheels' & putting back together , I have plumped for a 196? Raleigh "Lenton" Grand Prix, in need of tlc, some bits....& arguably a re-spray.
I will go "on a Journy with it" - it may be a journey to the "Tip" !! (but I think - & hope not
As an Ebay 'win' at the princely sum of £13......& a few pence, it can't be all bad ???.......the rather nice saddle is probably worth three times that.
I will post a pick when I have it to hand - it is rough, ragged, missing period bit's & currently 'hybridised'
but we all need challenges in life ?
