When I was offered it for £5. I just couldn't say no I think it will make a good winter project for me .
Came home gave it a jet wash and took a few snaps
The Frame number is A2033958 so if any kind soul tell me the year please, also the fade out paint has a pink tinge at the outer edges is this just age or should it be like that? I will be respraying it so I would know.

Yes a 1992... bargain for a £5..
How seized are the parts, a good caking of rust there.. still will make for a good project!

Seat tube is fine I haven't tried the stem yet a couple of broken spokes and bottom bracket has some play just a quick look though.This should keep me out of trouble for a while the joys of retirement.

Some things aren't about the money, definately not this bike :lol:

£5 though, can't argue with that. Probably cost more to get it working properly, but will be worth it.
