#Just posted this in the main chat but thought i should ask you lot too.

Hey :)

Cheesing!!

Just been out for a walk this summers evening; and discovered 2 bikes beside the bins on our street! Joy!

Seems to be a circa 1992 16" Dawes MountainTrack in decent nick - full 200GS groupset in lovely satin purple.
(anyone have archive photo's at all?!)
Will be building this pour moi.
(if i don't quit and bin it. ;) )

And also a lovely Purple Ladies Giant H-ollywood with SL-TY31 Thumbies.
(any idea on age/ageing? Lumo green stickers 8) )
Will be building this pour le missus.
(if i don't quit and bin it. ;) )


Only been on the site for a month or two and constantly day-dreaming about bikes of the retro variety to get my teeth cut into - and these two pop up on my street! Joy! :)

Will fire up photos when my flatmate gets back from the Kelburn Garden party with the camera.

Keep 'em peeled folks! There's gold in them there hills. ;)

Get some pics up, it's a shame what people throw out - they could at least drop it off at a charity.

that's a bingo! Aye, same model, same year, for sure.
Photo doesn't do the frame/fork colours justice.

Thank you very much for taking time to find/post that ;)

I'm not racing anymore so I doubt you'll see me unless in Edinburgh or a random trip to Glentress ;)
pics inabitty.

I like the dawes, the monostay on the giant is nice too. The Dawes should clean up to quite a nice ride.

We don't race when we meet up, there is a carpark dash at the end for those that feel the need but our meets are generally leisurely affairs, and no one get left behind unless they want to be.

The Bike-station in Edinburgh should sort you out for parts.
