Lack of space forces me to sell of some bikes. After the Scott pro, the second bike for sale is this nice 1988 Giant Escaper. I think it was the second year Giant brought out MTB's on under their own name and the first year in Europe. Fully original except for the grips , chain, cassette and derailleur wheels. MT-60 grouppo including the very nice satin silver finish of the stem and handlebar. Araya very wide rims and Joytech high flange hubs. Frame has many lacquer repairs, but no dents and it actually adds to history of the bike. Size is 55cm seattube (c-t) and 58cm toptube (c-c). Asking 100 Euros and no splitting. Sending to the UK will be problematic, I guess.

Thanks for the compliments and interests!
Last time I tried for shipping I had no luck (all companies had such restrictions on size, it wouldn't fit a bike) except for the couriers and they want ridiculous prices. I will have another go.

Have you thought of putting in more then one box? It would mean taking the bike apart but it may work out cheeper.

If you want to pm me you details I don't mind looking in to it for you?


Cheers Brian.

You are welcome to do so, no problem. I have to look at it more accurately, but I think it will fit in two boxes and will cost 2 x 25 euros. I never considered this option as the ratio between postage and value is a bit off according to me.
