Just picked this up off Gumtree, and am looking to restore.

Not seen one before and I haggled it down to £30 as the seatpost was stuck. Non driveside crank is also snapped...

Hoping to get it stripped of parts tomorrow and start the clean up. Pretty original apart from, crank, front wheel and (I think) shifters.

Anyway, here's some pics after I'd taken all the plastic tat off.. Bottle cage will need to go but bolt is currently seized.

Sylus - it will be a sympathetic restoration, so Harry Hall sticker will stay!

Chris - You know me' always sniffing out the bargains! :D

Today could be interesting... BB is proper stuck and the inner teeth are rounded... Not totally by me but someone else had already had a good go at chewing them up...

Seatpost is tighter than I expected, I've had the post in a vice and tried to move the frame - but it's solid...

Anyway, got the afternoon to myself - as wife and kids are off to panto, so I should get some time at it!

Absolutely love this - I'm currently collecting bits for a '92 PineM - and you don't seem to see many around (there may be a good reason for this!) :)

Good price - I paid £20 just for the frame/seatpost. A similar Pine M frame & forks (in good nick) recently went on eBay for £75....

As for the stuck seatpost, try this.......
