So I had to help my grandad today clean out his shed!:roll:
He like me was much into his bikes :wink:
We'll start with the best!
ImageAn old Cyclo Benelux rear derailler, as you can see it's in a bad way but it was free!
Next
ImageAn old Falcon rear mech!
ImageAn old Simplex rear derailler.
Also found a old Shimano tourney rear mech too. Can't wait too see what I find when I clean the other shed next Sunday where he keeps majority of his bike bits.
So he said I could keep them and any other old bike bits I find :D
Much tat was given away and scrapped today as we've got to make way for his new mobility scooter.

That looks like a Benelux P2 mech - quite rare as they usually fell apart!

Definitely a keeper unless you decide to sell it to a Benelux collector.

Yeah it is a P2 :lol:
downloaded the info of the web on how to disassemble etc.
How much do you reckon it'll be worth to a collector?
