Evenin' all,

I am looking for old, abused stuff so that I can try and bring it back to life eg stems, seat posts, bars but preferably stuff that I could use - if, and only, if I can clean it up.

Look in the bottom of your tool boxes etc that type of stuff.

No rush, I have enough to keep me going at the moment.

Thanks all

I have had to edit this, to state that the stuff is for practising not really for re-sale and I will, obviously, pay postage but not much more!

A bit odd indeed :wink: :lol:

You got the cleaning bug eh!? Rewarding work isn't it bringing things back to life and putting them to use. Your best bet is probably to find some old used and abused racers on ebay then do the whole sha-bang. Sell it on once you've done all the work and start again.

Your missus won't thank you but you can claim that your new hobby is self funding, which it will be if you play your cards right.
