I have recently embarked on a build for my girlfriends uncle and have been sourcing bits here and there, trying to keep in budget but struggling!

Bits I need

Brake calipers
Saddle
Levers
Pedals, quill rat trap, platform etc, don't think he's quite ready for clipless


Now I'm looking for cheap as possible/free would be great ;)

If you are anywhere in Yorkshire I will cycle to collect and pay/buy you a beer/coffee/tea for your troubles.

Thanks

I have a very old rolls that you can have for nowt. I think it's the first one I ever bought! Structurally it's fine, but it looks a mess. I was going to paint the rails and recover it to get it looking halfway decent again, but you can take it if you like. It's in N Yorks, Northallerton/Thirsk area.

Cheers Foz,might take you up on that, just waiting for the hamster to get back in touch as it would be nice to kill two birds with one stone and get the frame and wheels out of my spare room.
