she says

"Up for auction is a classic bicycle. I am having a big clearout on behalf of my husband, as he has far to many toys & gadgets that are just getting in the way. He says he is not happy that i'm listing his bike but he hasn't taken it out in the last 3 years."

for those interested, an early, 1990 ? light zolatone Marin Pine Mountain, although the "legal eyed" may question if she can actually sell it given not hers ?

Looks like a 1990 PM with resprayed forks (showing the orange scratched through) but not original mechs and brake/gear levers. I asked how much she wanted for it and said she wouldn't take less than £145...which it is certainly not worth, IMO...

given her "honesty" around ownership, may get pulled if price too low, I think the "marital coercion" legal argument could be under further scrutiny :facepalm:
