Hi all, i've got this 80's steel frameset doing nothing that needs a good home. There's a build thread here:

viewtopic.php?f=23&t=385435

I had intended to restore this but honestly cannot see myself riding with downtube shifters anymore!. I cannot watch it turn into scrap knowing its history (see the build thread for the info i found) so am hoping it will interest someone here.

The frame has been chemically strippped and then left in the shed to develop a fine coat of surface rust, so isn't looking its best, but it is a quality built race bike from the early 80's so deserves a good home.

Anyway it's free, Ideally local collection for someone with a connection to the shop in Norwich who will lavish care and attention on it.


Cheers Matt

Hi kermitgreenkona88 your interest is noted, ideally i'd like it collected due to the faff of packing etc, but i would like it to go to someone with an emotional attachment to the shop, so if no-one shouts closer by tomorrow lunchtime, i'll contact you and see if we can sort something out. Cheers Matt

I totally understand not wanting the faff, and was expecting wait to see if someone could collect it, so no worries :D :D
