Price is collected, collection is from York, Sorry but no postage atm.

Checker Pig CPX 6060 frameset 20.5", carbon frame with tange cromo fork - this is really light at 2.2kg with the fork, seat qr and headset

Lee, if I hadn’t just got this 1986 19" Canyon for my son's next project I would have bitten your arm off... :facepalm:

Talking of Green Spectres…. LGF might be worth a PM as he’s always lamenting the loss of his childhood friend (a lime green spectre)

Hi retrobikeguy, I am quite interested in the fw evans but I live too far away to pick up. I understand you said that you wouldn't do postage but would you allow me to arrange a courier? No worries if not.

Hi LM, its the packing that kills me to be honest, I had a meltdown last month after trying to pack a frame correctly for an interested party and ended up giving up on the sale. I'll let you know if I get to the point of having to try again but the whole thing stresses the tits off me.
