Hi,

My parents have emmigrated to South Africa and my dad has left me his Dawes Dalesman that he has had since he was a boy. It hasn't been used properly in years but was service recently. The brakes and gears all work well and it still has the original leather seat. It is in very good condition considering its age. I would use it but it is too small for me.

Can anybody tell me the best way to get ride of it? Is it worth anything? I can't bear to put it in the tip as it still works?

Thanks

Probably the best way is either to advertise it here, or to put it on ebay with the word 'fixie' in the description :D

Guessing, assuming it's ridable and reasonable tidy you could get £70-150 for it.

Without trying to sound like an idiot...whatever the original ones were. I will confirm the make in the morning.
