Hi everybody, so someone I know who works at a place called Action 21 is getting me this bike for £45, not bad eh?

He's going to swap the steel wheels for Aluminium ones too and service the bike for me.

What do you guys know and think of it?

He has a few more bikes at his workplace but I'm on a tight budget!

Here's the bike.

Cheers. :D

looks like a later viking built in northern ireland
sounds a fair price but i wouldnt go overboard spending on it
do a web search on viking cycles sure there is some info
possibly a "vision" model try this link http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/ ... Viking.htm

Thanks for the feedback. :)


I was going to put 105 on it etc. then do a frameset swap later on.


Just at the moment I'm on a budget so this frame is going to be my bike for the time being.
