Ok no pics but taking a look today the wheels I intended for it don't fit as it needs 27" which the only set I can supply is a rusty steel rimmed set with very worn tyres.

I can reduce the cost of the bike down to £75 posted but wanted to check to see if you're still interested before progressing with pics.

Oh and it's a 50cm ladies frame.

I was a little bemused that this bike is for 27" wheels as it isn't of that era so tried some 700c in there and they are fine, but again the 700c wheels I intended for it are not suitable!

I can supply you with a front wheel, set of tyres and innertubes for £80 posted.

I'll pm you a pic or two I think so you got an idea of what we're talking about!
