If those frames are still around in a couple of week I may well go for it.
But I reckon they'll have gone though.

I have a very original (read worn :) ) Kona Cindercone spatter finish with pretty much full Suntour xcd groupset, I even think the tyres are original :shock: - downside cracked frame (behind crank, just after the cross brace) looks like a 19inch. Forks are fine.

I don't want to post this but will pass down the chain or drop off if it is nearish.
It's a mates, I was thinking a donation of £20 to charity, he recently gave up a kidney to one of his friends so I'll be asking him who the money goes to. As it is to charity feel free to offer more.

Given the recent weather this might be a good purchase for someone.

Some wheels if anyone is interested - all 26"

Pick up only, sorry.

Hope sport 6 bolt, rear, 36h black 135mm QR on EX721(sport is the one with the full length disc mounting holes) -inc 160mm hope saw rotor near untouched.
Good nick, few scratches - £80

Hope sport 6 bolt, front, 32h, black on 121 ceramic -inc near untouched hope 183mm saw rotor
Again fair condition, few scratches, couple of wear points and pitting to the ceramic, but ok all the same. £50 Bearings shot. I can put in dunlop ones or diy.

Hope pro 2 ,front, 32h, rebuilt on mavic 719,black spokes a used rim but still ok. Built by Al Gow and unused since building -£40

Goldtech Sam DH oil filled -rear, 32h, gold, 135mm QR on mavic 121
I've made it take hope rotors so no adaptor is now required. (theres a lip i ground out the points over the holes which allow the hope shape to fit. To my own mind its nothing that would harm the hub.) £95

Hi all
My ex neighbour gave me this to see if I could sell for him. He picked it up at an auction for his step son, who never touched it so he asked if I could try and sell it for him.
It's a 2003 GT Jamie Bestwick pro model, looks pretty original with the exception of the seat, rear tyre, front brake removed which is pretty normal and the addition of a set of S&M bars with a Dirt Harry brake lever, which would be an upgrade for sure. It's in good condition with a bit of chipping here and there in the paint which is a British racing green colour.
He was wanting about £80 but I am sure he would take a bit less. I can bring it south with me next month if somebody wants it for their children or themselves.
It's a bit later than I am used to by about 20 years, but seems a decent bit of kit. Can take more pics or get more info if needed. Just thought I would put it here before anywhere else just in case some of the macretro clan were feeling a bit rad. :)

Jamie

Got a GT Avalanche LE frameset looking for a new home. From memory its 18" BB-TT but can check etc.

Decent condition no dents, could do with a good polish up etc.

was looking for around £50 OnO if that sounds right, plus postage if it needs delivered. Loads more pics if required.

PM me if interested.
