hang on a bit fella. This isnt the sort of Merckx frame that might be considered lightweight, specialist, racing fayre. This is very much a 1970's typical teenagers 5-gear-racer as we called em. Probably made by raleigh or some big name with a licence to brand as EM. My mate had one, frame exactly like that. The BSO of its day.
Well, if you want a goer with some nostalgia thrown in, then why not, but other than that, Ive seen better stuff for £80. Only my opinion and all that.
I should probably have been a bit clearer - well aware that this is more of a nostalgia trip than a decent bike.
I was more wondering if there was anything that set it apart from the standard retro BSO brigade!
I'll see if I can get him down to £60
