Elusive Track 2's!

It appears to have most of the original core kit - get bidding! The last one went for over £300 and whilst this has a ropey saddle and bar ends the paint work looks in better condition.

Yeah I reckon, looks too small for a 19" but I could be wrong.

Well the brake levers and thumbshifters look to be..........

Or you could dispense with all the rust, scratching, damaged decals, and potential threat the Track two forks aren't a warranty replacement set, hard work and Heartache.

And have a complete bike, in Shop floor Brand New condition, fully serviced and ready to ride, With Proven Track II forks, that are warranty replacements and owned from New.

All components to make this bike Spec correct are present and can be supplied. And the rims were Originally supplied new but not used, and have been handbuilt into a perfectly trued and tensioned spec correct wheelset using Stainless spokes.

Given what Rotters needing epic Journeys have been selling for...., Why bother when you can have a proper one for sensible money....?

Ludicrous..., for effectively frame, fork, shifters, brake levers. The rest of it was best suited for a BSO, not forgetting the work required for the remaining parts.

:facepalm:
