Certainly not saying this is a perfect or indeed correct restoration - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=250275
- I just fancied a cheap & cheerful job for a bit of fun. If I'd of gone full out on an exact re-build to original spec, it'd still be sat as a pile of parts - as it's not worth a great deal (it's probably worth £80 and i've spent £125) I thought i'd get the best I could for nominal outlay. Enjoyed doing it so i'd follow the advice that's been given already - gumtree, local ads, car-boot even - find something that's cosmetically ok, spend cash on easily sourced parts, clean them up and job done - doesn't cost a great deal as long as the bike / frame isn't big money in the first place.
Best of luck, there's a lot of bikes out there that need some TLC...
