I discovered a small crack in the headtube on this bike couple of weeks ago when looking at it
I was pretty annoyed as I love this bike and its the decals on it that make it such an unusual bike, no one has any artwork to be able to reproduce if I had fixed and re finished........
But luckilly for me Ebay has come to the rescue with a donor bike
I snatched it for peanuts and cost me more in fuel to collect
Its an 18" frame and my original is a 16" which to be honest was slightly on the small side. The strange thing is both frames have the same headtube size of 100mm
The original was very original and has been used a lot in its previous life, It has the original saddle which is past its best, seized pedals etc etc. I have spent most of the afternoon cleaning 19 years of muck and grime off the frame and forks.
I have started the sad process of dismantling my Trekker and have started to transfer the parts across onto the donor frame and will post a pic up when its done this week.
