1982 Piranha.Made in England,sold at Halfords for £92.00.Not a high end bike.Very heavy due to the wheels.Got mine from a bloke down my street,well the frame ,forks,wheels,handlebars and seat.Due to the fact that they were cheap there are nt many left,which is the reason why i restored it.Hope you like it.

lol i had one of those new : ) really good to see it. assholes at the bike shop built it up with the fork thewrong way around so i had the brake inside the frame, feet that touched the front wheel and nasty looking geometry. first time ive seen one with the forks on the right way lol

A very sweet build and well done

Seat is a little forward and would look better half way or close

Cheers Bendycat
