While out in town yesterday i called into LBS to have a chat and pick up a couple gear cables.

While i was there a rather interesting bike came in as a part-ex, i took one look and had to buy it.

As it was when i got it.

And after 3 hours of removing the decals, replacing bars with bigger apehanger, new tyres and brakes pads, and a good clean. Here she is now.

Cost me £49.99, a bit of a bargain i reckon.

Cadbury decals would be interesting for it.

Took it out round town yesterday, rides fine with no probs, bit of a head turner aswell.
Could do with a different crank in it as the one in it is slightly bent on the non drive side.

I also have an occ stingray that i've had for about 4 years and a mk2 Raleigh chopper.

I like weird/different bikes.

They are Warfdale XP10's with upgraded tweeters with a 20watt JVC amp, make a great stereo for the tv.

They're about 30 years old and still sound awesome.

There's an old lady in our village who has recently discarded her old shopper for a cruiser like that. She looks like a blue rinsed Peter Fonda and has become a bit of a local celeb because of it.
