Hi,
My friends son needs a new bike as he's outgrown the one I built for him a few years ago. he's around 5' 5" now so I'm looking for something around a 16" frame to fit.

Her budget is £100 for a bike so looking for something in that region or frame and forks that I can swap the existing components onto. Preferably looking for a suspension fork this time round.

I'm based in Rossendale - so something reasonably local I can collect would be useful. Could also part swap a 13" marin muirwoods frame/fork if interested.

anyone have anything suitable?

Thanks, Matt.

Thanks, I saw that and it looks interesting. I've asked me friend what she thinks about it. Where in West Yorks are you?

I’ve got a 16” GT in the for sale section I’d let go for £100. Fully working and I’d find a saddle for it too. I’m in Huddersfield and could maybe deliver it up to Hebden or maybe off the M62 on the Lancs side?

In the last couple of weeks I have acquired 2 options that would fit your needs, sir (although I note your earlier mentioned GT aversion )
Better details to follow & I'll try to sort some pics,

#1 - GT Outpost Trail in baby blue, 16" alloy frame. Complete bike, appears to be 100% original inc fabulous WTB embriodered saddle. Fully rigid.

#2 - Muddy Fox Courier Comp in green, again 16" frame (I need to check). Complete bike & 100% original as far as I can tell atm; also has a embroidered MFX saddle & this has RST suspension forks.

Both bikes seem to be original, hardly used & would only require minimal cleaning//fettling/pumping to be ridable - although I have not spent any time with them so that is entirely a view formed during a "look see."

Hopefully there will be a couple of general photos in the links below.........

I can get more/better should either machine float your boat.


I live in Kent, but I rescued these from the dump.
I have no idea what these are worth tbh. A friend paid money for them & had kept them in a garage for "a while."
She's now a single Mum & needs the space, so I thought it'd be good to recycle these into some cash for her.
We can discuss details if there's any interest.

Cheers!
Tinc
