Hi folks, I'm brand new here!

Just wanted to share with you my latest beauty

Last night I bought this GIANT stonebreaker for £26!!!!!!

It has had one owner from brand new, he was bought it for his birthday in 1993

The bike is totally original and on original brake blocks and TYRES too!!

I'm going to give it a good polish and have it even more gleaming this weekend

It rides really well and everything works perfectly

No rust apart from a teeny bit on a couple of spokes.....

I actually now don't want to ride and just stare at it instead!

Definately going to keep it mint and look after it....

He was very sad to let it go BUT had to sell for personal reasons.

Ive also got a Merida Dakar from early 90's too which needs a bit of work on the frame as in paint.

Good one....

Apparently I need to buy her a Mulberry handbag for her wedding present next week... Am I gonna get an NOS set of Z2 Superfly's?
