In decent condition considering age, all parts included (spoke nut and plastic washer)
Only done around 59 miles in 40 years :shock:

I have one of the chrome ones kicking around from the days before Cateye computers, although mine has about 6000 miles on it

I also had the cheaper grey one. I used it on my Raleigh Stratos in 1985 when I did Land's End to John O Groats!
I then got an early Avocet computer, wish I still had them both :(

The dude who won it was a time waster so its going to be relisted unless somebody on here wants it? 10 quid including postage or would really like to swap it for an old 26' rear wheel for my Dyna-tech, I will put cash to it too. Desperately need to replace the badly buckled rear wheel, I'm proper skint atm and can't afford a wheel truer and I wouldn't know how to use it anyway :(
