Opinions needed- refresh or donor bike?


Retro Newbie
So quick update, riding last night the seat post kept slipping and I tried to tighten the seat bolt to the point that the thread stripped.

After much swearing, I had a closer inspection and looks like someone had cut the seat post flush as the frame has actually cracked. Looks like where the frame has been bent apart.

So now on the hunt for a replacement frame/new bike. For the time being have tried to chemical weld the seat post, into the cut off post and with some cable ties and electrical tape it's now ride able (locally... not properly).

Have found a carrera fury the same as my favourite bike as a kid so fingers crossed I can salvage some parts and build up.
