Cheers for the link Eck, a real bargain and in great nick as it turns out. Better than the photos.

A truly horrendous colour though!

And oddly about 2 minutes walk from my front door. At least now I know who owns the Nissan Micra covered with bike stickers.

Nah, gave him the full £50. But as I said they are in great nick. Definitely no more retro parts, he seemed a bit baffled that anyone should want such short travel forks. And be happy with the fact that they don't do huge travel.

No cash for a frame. However I may have to rethink my paint job. Black may have gone and has possibly been replaced with a British Racing Green metallic.

I like the way you think. I think there is a Fiat blue not a million miles from it, or Ford blue.

That's the one! :D

I have a feeling the owner stuffs it full with a bike that's probably worth a lot more than the car.
