My mates Bike, hung in my garage

https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2222469/

PARKPRE - Circa 1994 - Full Titanium

Similar Bike to below - but needs some TLC (Not too much):

http://www.parkpre.com/litespeedproelite.htm

Thing of beauty to the right person.

My mate swears it's a 19" frame (he always rides 19") however when I measure centre of BB to top of seat tube it comes out a 22" (this could be 1994 geometry for you?)

£800 offers

Cheers,

John

Totally 8) One of my pet Grrrrr's :lol: - people who dont clean their stuff before selling or attempting to sell.

A dirty bike might indicate other hidden problems :?

Yup..have to agree.
Half an hour with soap, water and some tidying up would add £100 to that.

If i was asking £800 for something i would at least clean it and make it look nice for the photos. especially if i was describing it as a 'retro thing of beauty'

the elastomers in the forks are probably gone too... but it definitely has potential

True, but then where's the fun in buying a minty bike that needs no work doing to it? My "tinkering instincts" would be severely affected :lol:
