Get yourself on your local Freecycle group (as long as you don't live in my area!) the only bikes that ever crop up on there are old MTBs with horizontal dropouts.

I'm currently turning a pretty crappy old Coventry Eagle I got off there into a cycle speedway bike, mainly because it's something I've never done before. No it's not a proper Coventry Eagle, just some badge engineering.

yeah hub is re spaced and re dished. only took about 30 minutes.. sold it now though to a kid at work who wanted some transport on the cheap.

got another raliegh max to do the same too.

am on freecycle but you have to be SO quick replying to posts to get anything.
