Saw this - like the statement 'abit of bottom bracket damage with one of the cups still inside but can still be removed.'

...well if it can be removed, why haven't you removed it then!

I was going to bid and then I had a quick look.

Tell-tale signs of.....

'...oh all you need is to get a bit of heat onto that, I have a welding set up in my garage....'

Neanderthal technique.

The whole thing has been subjected to LOTS of heat, and then sprayed with cheap silver paint.

It's furked. Good and proper. It's for the recyclers, not for a rebuild. Would NOT touch it.

It's the Tourney level rear mech which makes the piece really sing.
