Back up and running again. Unfortunately I've had to withdraw the '88 Stumpy, it has had to be put to in to service. I've managed to lose PMs of who wanted what so it's all up for grabs again. Priority will go to those attending the Downs ride at the weekend and are able to collect there.



Hi Folks,

As most of you probably know, I was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. Full story here if you want a read:

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=257080

As some of you have commented I seem to be dealing with it rather well. I am, thanks in part to the good people at The Olive Tree a cancer support charity local to me who have been helping me out. If it wasn't for their support I don't think I'd be doing quite as well as I am.

In the spirit of karma I am trying to help them by raising some funds for them. I've had bit of a sort out in the man cave and I have the below list of stuff to offer to the good folks of Retrobike.

Here's the dealio. I will post out within the UK at my expense for the smaller items, bigger items are collection only. To make it easier I live relatively close to the Surrey Hills National Ride and stuff can be collected at the ride. All I ask in return is that once you've received it, you make a donation to The Olive Tree via my JustGiving Page for whatever you think the stuff is worth to you. I will also be trekking up Snowdon in September to raise additional funds for them, if you don't want any old bike bits but want to make a donation any way then please feel free!

Please bear in mind that time is tight for me, I will probably only be able to post out on a Saturday so you may be waiting a short while for stuff.

Righty, here we go. Some bits photographed. PM me if you want more pics/details. Please PM me if you're interested in anything. Please assume that all items are still available until I post up that they're taken. Dibs count for nothing.

There is nothing I want on the list but was very touched by your story and want to help. I work as an Intensive care nurse and I see a lot of people with cancer. It's amazing how much difference a positive attitude makes! Kick it's Ar$e! I've just added a tenner to your just giving page.
All the best,

Dave

Hi

Do any of the seat posts you have for sale fit the Trek 990 frame? Need a seat post for a 950 I'm building of same vintage!

Thanks
