19" centre bottom bracket to top.

THIS IS FOR PICK UP ONLY IN EITHER HONITON OR SIDMOUTH IN EAST DEVON.

Seems nearly all original, except front wheel. Have a browse in the archive section and marvel at these. Lovely colour.

Good bits: Nearly all original (except front wheel) profile bar ends, girvin flex stem, drivetrain looks ok except needs a good degrease and new chain. Frame and forks look in good nick.

Bad bits: seatpost was seized but I have got it out (hooray me!) and could do with a bit of cleaning in the seattube, lot of the bolts are rusty (easy clean with wire brush and coca cola). Will need new cables. Front wheel is shot.

I got this for free but had to drive a way to get it so recouping my travel cost. And I am charging an extra £2 to buy me half a pint for spending a week with penetrating oil before yanking out the seatpost.

Someone will ask about postage, so as John would say, I am happy to post for £400. Hence I dont want to.

One crap picture you say:

That's grease on the seatpost..

And here is what they can look like...

90 miles... 1.45-2 Hours. Happy to hold it until you are down here/nearer to take less of a detour

Hello coomber,

My brother lives in Torbay and may well be looking for a comuter bike.

He's off riding the Dartmoor Devil at the moment. I have told his missus to get him to ring me later when he is back.

He could stretch to a whole pint of ale or, if you prefer he makes his own cider. It is proper smooth. You're guaranteed to get your sight back within three days!
