Hi guys,

Recent developments means I can bike to work and not practical on my Full-Sus! I've got an old reynolds road frame but looking to make it roll. Looking for donor bike or at least 700 wheels and drive train initially.

As long as it rides I don't care about aesthetics so looking for cheap cheap shed/barn bikes or bits as really don't have much to spend. I have a childs balance bike in good condition if that would sweeten a deal.

I could collect from South Birmingham, Coventry, Oxford, Reading or Basingstoke (or anywhere in between!).

Anything is appreciated.

Thanks

Chris

Hi, sounds great. What prices were you thinking of?

I'm looking for everything apart from frame and forks.

Thanks

Forgot to mention that to make my life simpler I'll probably run the bike as a single speed so drivetrain can be simple kit

thanks

Hi Chris I have a dismantled Dawes tourer, available parts are F&F rubbed down and ready for paint, lovely GB noodle bars and stem, Weinmann Brakes and levers, hurt derailleurs and shifters, 27 1/4 wheels, square taper crankset.
I'd take £60 for the lot, £45 if you don't want the frame

All the parts are cleaned and polished and ready to go.

I'm near banbury / warwick area

Tempted but not 100% so might hold out a little while to see what else comes through.
Thanks for the links.
