Up to £80 to spend for a full bike, obviously it's not going to be anything great but would like a nice colour :facepalm: and I'm happy to put some effort to getting it working as long as it just new cables, bearing etc.

Happy to pick up around north Leeds, north Bradford, Harrogate Otley area.


Cheers Brian.

Thanks for the kind offer Longbeech but there are a few thing I have my eye on at the moment and I also have an eye on Trebz ss Raleigh but know it will kill me.

Can I tempt anyone to part with a bike if there was a nice round £100 to offer?

cheers Brian
