I've got one, albeit in 'well used' condition!

I currently (well, until last year) run it as a single speed rough stuff kind of bike. About 12 years ago (I was young and didn't know about teh retro!) I filed off the cable stops. Very neatly, FWIW.

The photo is one I took just now, in a garage that's missing two fluorescent tubes (am ordering tonight!).

It's 22" c to c.

I'm kind of amazed by your post and my having the bike... I mean, I know it's a site for retro bike enthusiasts, but still!

:oops: Does it make it better if I say the frame was in a sorry way when I got it?

Yes it is for sale and I'm sure we can work something out - assuming he feels he can do something with the base frame!. And I guess it looked that way too, once upon a time :(

Obviously happy to take more pictures.

My preference would be to sell it with bars, stem, brakes, headset and seatpost. Bars and stem are *I think* original and are in good condition. Brakes are 80s long drop calipers which means it can take a 700c wheel. Headset is a nice silver one that fits and seatpost is a Dura Ace something.

I have a range of bike contemporary wheels that may suit as well

Cheers

Mark.

Hey. I'm on Oxfordshire, Didcot ish. As for how much, I really don't know. Will ponder and let you know on Saturday? Equally, drop me a pm or a note here and say what you think, I'm open to it!
