anyhow - photos.....




1. Peugeot Triathlon - measured frame from centre of pedal connector to top of frame holding handlebars (! told you!) The / thing. That was 21.5"

I bought this over 20 yrs ago when I was a student and kept it ever since in my parents' shed and for last 13 yrs in my shed. I have original seat and think the only thing changed are tyres - they are cracked an must be over 10 yrs old... everything else should be as when I bought the bike although more tatty and used...

2. Dawes Milk Racer

The tyres have been changed as my other half was riding this when his broke down... I think the bike is as original as I cannot remember adding / changing anything.

Been in shed for last 10 yrs or so.... Frame measured from centre of pedal connector thing to top of pipe thing is 21"

Both look thoroughly interesting, if only I hadn't driven home from Anglesey this morning :lol:

Free bump!

Hi

Thanks - I would actually sell each for £100 but perhaps they're not worth that - perhaps they are worth only £20, I simply do not know and that is the problem I have. I don't want to give them away - done things like that in the past on freecycle and they've been for sale on ebay!! In the past I've always said I'd rather keep them in the shed 'in case' rather than sell them for a give-away prize. My Triathlon is special because of memories I guess...

Price = more than nothing and less than too much??? :)

Would like each bike to go to an enthusiast obviously but will sell for 100 pounds each. I think that's fair price nowadays as 100 pounds doesn;t go far whilst a bike can... (sorry)

Thanks again for the additional PMs from people.

Just to reiterate that I'm afraid I just ahve not got the time to arrange packaging / delivery so these are for local pick up only - which I appreciate restricts basically everybody. Have also put on ebay - thought I'd mention to be polite.

I'll be asking advice soon on my dad's old racer which is from 70's or earlier and has campognigle thingie parts.... with intention of getting back on the road and keeping it for his memory (he loved the bike but hadn;t ridden it for decade of more).

thanks
