Here is the latest Lodger in the Bike home, One has left me and another followed :oops:

I am still over excited about this puppy, its an 89 Trekker Competition in absolutley immaculate condition, its all original apart from saddle & Post and wheels.

I finished late from work and have just bult it back up after shipping, I will get some more pics when its not dark out. Its like new , all decals are perfect, has the original SIS and SLR cables and the unforgettable double U brakes.

I will get a full spec up when I have stopped pinching myself.

Cheers

GM

Cheers buddy, I dont like turning stuff down but how often do you get a double U braked machine offered to you twice in 24hrs ...... This has been one on my list of top 3 bikes for me to own.

Wow that looks bloody awesome. Hard to tell in the pic but is it the one with the internal cabling along the top tube?

Bloody immense. Love it.

Where do you find these bikes GM? That one is just stunning. Perfect in so many ways from the decals to the Deore groupset.

The double U-brakes just push it up another notch. 8)
