This cropped up on Gumtree last weekend and it was local to me so I thought it would be worth a punt.

Collected on Tuesday evening from it's original owner of approximately 25 years - he told me he's hardly used it and the condition reflects that. There's hardly any wear on the braking surfaces of the rims!

7x3 speed, Shimano RSX hubs, Exage 500 group, Alesa rims, Vetta Turbo saddle, Michelin 'Select' tyres (presume original but in immaculate condition considering!)

These pics were taken in the condition I bought her in:

Had a purge yesterday and replaced both gear and brake cables, inner tubes, removed the pannier rack and the granny ring (and adjusted front mech to suit), i also removed chain and cassette and gave them a deep clean.

She really is in fantastic condition - I took her out for a spin to work today and it's a fantastic, smooth & comfortable ride:

I had one of these stolen from me in 1991, in Portsmouth. I'd only had it for eight days. I hope it had a good life somewhere.
