built this up as cheaply as poss, with much wheeler dealering.
built up for rojo as he is bike-less and jobless at the mo.

total cost, not including consumables=£35.00

thanks to all those that made it possible

graham for the frame and forks, with loads of bits to get going;)

big eck for the chainset

the people of colchester for loads of freecycle bits :)
