I could free about the addiction of buying bike by using a "BikePatch".
Everytime I go on Retrobike, and every time I go on "Auction watch" I put a "BikePatch" on my shoulder.

I use "BikePatch" since a month, and my girlfriend and my bank are happy :lol:

It was a tasty price too. Nabbed off eBay on the sly and rescued from what could only be described as "bike hell" in Bradford.

The seller hadn't described it properly but it's good.

As I bought it:

Might get sold on as it may be a bit big for me. Wanting it for a pootling around/touring bike. Paint was in amazing condition, parts barely worn but it had been in the wars as the bars and bar ends were bent. Very slight dent to top tube but only a mm deep. I negotiated a hefty discount for those problems.

High rise Tioga T-bone stem on the way for it. Just need a chain and tyres and some bars (just sold some :roll: )

Enjoy!
