Oh my.

My spidey sense detects it may be missing two parts though.

As soon as I saw his bobble hat through the window I wondered what he'd brought over....

They were never anything special on these bikes - I'll put something suitable together.

I had a small ovalised tubing version back in 1990 as my first 'proper' road bike with 6spd Sachs chromed close ratio cassette and cut down drops, it must have been only a 21".

Mine has been in a garage rafters for about 20 years unused.

These are fetching good prices now:

you are like the local cat sanctuary for cats now...people bring their unloved bikes and you give them a roof over their heads and kindness to bring and end to their suffering.

It's a calling...

Instant moneymaking tip....Turn it into a fixed, place an ad on ebay with the words fixie and pista in the title and some dopey hipster will give you half the value of your house for it

From the Land Of Giants.... huge.......

I have had smaller versions of this and other Raleigh sports bikes including the ovalised tubing bikes, there were many down the tip in the mid 1990's. :lol:

Looks like this one has survived longer than most, yeah stick it on ebbay and let some one else have a play :) you don't need it .. unless you are 8 foot tall that is............
