I had a snipe set on this but had to cancel it. Pleased it is in the family though.
I really liked this a lot and had even spoken to the seller, and despite what he had said in the ad, he agreed to package it up so that I could send a courier to collect it! It was only a post Christmas moment of epiphany that made me cancel my bid when I was stood in the shed looking at the 5 frames and boxes full of parts that are .....ahem.....in progress, including a Yo and a Roberts
it was mostly because when I saw this Donohue I had visions of a new paint job and rollercams and other subtle changes of parts which I don't have in stock
, I knew it would be yet another project (£££). So my bid was cancelled and I deliberately went out so that I couldn't watch the auction and be tempted
All in all it seems that myself and others deciding not to/or were unable to bid for one reason or another and conspired to the bargain price that you got it for
. Now with so many potential god parents you will have to do it justice as we'll all be watching
Pulls up a chair......
No pressure then
As I said, I didn't plan to have a punt but then kind of reasoned with myself a little, mainly as I'm blessed with a bit more storage at the moment. In the past I too have been forced to go out or switch all laptop related stuff off! I'm hoping that I can do it justice though for y'all.
As it's a bit quiet at work I have already found myself mulling over potential paint schemes. I'm liking the red white blue idea, but then I've always liked the idea of a green bike, then there is the idea of doing it orange.... Then there is the question of who is going to do it! I've used Argos a couple of times in the past and they have done a great job for me (including the Kona Hot now owned by Ratbane on here) but I'm also considering some other options out there. I will welcome any suggstions from those who have had a good job done for them or who may be up for a little repainting themselves!
I'm hoping to do a stripdown in the next couple of days, then maybe put up a colour poll for everyone to have a play with.
Now who's up for some karma purple tyres
Several bikes, one supportive lady and still trying not to buy anything else!
