Inspired I went to my local tip in Nottingham, dreaming of Raleighs Carltons etc.

The very friendly chap there said that they got loads of bikes but they had to scrap them for 'health and safety' reasons. They weren't allowed to sell them or even give them away!

Darn a wee bit too small unless its got a long top tube he said hopefully :wink:

Just spotted some Falcon Pathfinder transfers on ebay so a proper restoration of the frame could be attempted.

With that in mind, how much would you want for the frame and fork only posted.

Cheers

There is one of them up in my parents garage loft! 8)

My first road bike, loved it!

Ended up being my winter hack training steed. Never serviced it, but it never needed it.

Probably the best bike I'll ever own :wink:
