I really really don't want to do this, but apparently the house is more important! :roll:
So for sale is my immaculate, super gorgeous Litespeed. The frame is in as new condition as its done about 10 miles since being built!

As you can see from the spec below, no money was spared on this build and it rides even better than it looks!
Collection preferred due to its value, but would look into boxing it up if necessary
very few about so difficult to value, so hoping around £900, but there is some wiggle room as it needs to go, cost me a massive amount more to build, but needs must!
Any questions, queries or offers let me know!

Actually - looking at that I know what you should do. Enter it in the Malverns show and shine, I reckon you've a bloody good chance of winning!
You win, get a grand cash and keep the bike. Job jobbed :)

And if you don't win, you've had a great retro weekend - put it up for sale afterwards and your no worse off than you are now!

As much as I’d love to go to the Malverns, the world of shift work means I’m working, so selling is the only way forward.

Price reduction bump for my fellow retrobikers, as it is now also on eBay.
Happy to take paypal and willing to box up or delivery within reason!
