I had to share a recent car boot find as it cost

£20

Cleaned and tidied with the rusty bolts removed.

Disc compatible frame too!

I sneakily stuck a spare Dura-Ace ti cassette on there and some wider bars as the originals were too narrow.

The same car-boot gave me a saddle so why not.

It was very.mossy! It was from an antiques dealer who clearly had no interest in bicycles. The rotten saddle made it look junk.

Bearing in mind my Mayhem bikes cost £5 and £20, its not uncommon for me to pick up stuff cheap

Well I hope it turns out good for you. Its a nice bike in what looks like excellent condition. Im just wary of buying bikes that are ridiculously cheap. Judging by the condition it was in it sounds like it was abandoned at some point. Enjoy the ride.
