Really chuffed with this for £50 rides lovely, needs a few things sorting out like the back wheel/spokes, and was thinking of recovering the saddle?

Nice - that's a lot of bike for £50... :shock: Some tanwall tryres would look nice on it, and unless you know what you're doing with saddles it might be easier to just buy a second hand Turbo or Rolls...?

Lovely bike - but as above, its screaming for a Rolls. ;)

Or, more controversially, a Yellow Turbo Saddle, Bontrager R2 Red rear tire, Bontrager R2 Blue front!

:lol:

Like the look would go well with the colour of the bike, just not sure about a saddle where the rails are showing, seems a bit modern maybe?

Are they both for sale?
