lovely of someone to give it to you, even the basic 18-23 ones like yours (and mine!) are fetching a ton these days... I was also given one by my cousin a few years back and use it now as a single speed... so cool BITD and still now, the black stem is wicked... mine's dropped a couple of pounds in weight (along with all it's gears!) and, after several incarnations, runs 52/18 on 23mm tyres with some radial spoked wheels off a modern Giant. Goes like the clappers, for a hack, and always raises a smile
yours must be the 25" size, it's huge
are the rims alloy? also, think they look much nicer with an alloy microadjust post, fluted
aside from the tyres, bar wrapping and saddle yours looks all original too!
