Can deliver to cycle jumble as per here: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=381024

So......story goes, pick up a bike relatively locally for the wheels, mostly. But expected to get back my money on the frame alone, as it's a Saracen Kili of some description. However....everything is seized, rounded off, stuck, broken or rusty. See below.... :facepalm:

17.5" Saracen Kili frame of some description. Seat post is seized, meaning I can't get the Kona seat clamp I wanted off. Expect the BB is seized too so haven't even bothered. Was really really manky around a seat tube bottle boss/mount, so have taken off as much of the crud as I can. See pics. Expect all tubes are possibly rotting from inside, don't know. Want £20 for it. Can I be arsed to post it? Very doubtful.

Edit re. above: BB now out, doesn't look too horrendous in BB shell, post has been hack sawed off to rescue clamp and tomorrow I will try and get post out with bench vice.... :facepalm:

8 speed cassette, not sure on model, with what looks like relatively new 8 speed KMC chain....£10 posted

It's pretty ropey Steven, and just thought....could be difficult to post with the seat post seized, as it would mean a very odd shaped box/large box.... :lol:

Anyway, can double check measurements, but is 17.5" from centre BB to top of seat tube, and from memory was 16" to the top tube/seat tube (ie, 'stand over')

I can remove the seat post, there wont be anything left of it afterwards (seat post that is) but at least you will have the clamp,

would do it for a couple of beer tokens

I am in Swindon - Wilts

Thanks chaps, but for what this is worth to me or anyone else for that matter, might just as well scrap it than waste any more time on it. I've other clamps!

Is currently soaking upside down in the workstand with tons of WD40....if that doesn't work I'll take it along to the cycle jumble I'm doing in a few weeks and someone will no doubt take it away, cost and hassle to me....nothing! :lol:
