Hello - just wondering if anyone's got something suitable kicking about. Looking for a friend, we're talking something step through/mixte, ideally older/vintage and in reasonable nick although I can give it a once-over if something appropriate turns up that is not pristine. Budget is not enormous.
Not mine but is this any good?
cheers - that is lovely, and I've bought a bike from @Ludd before and would be very happy to do so again, but whilst that's very well priced it is probably £50 above my friend's max budget...
Hi there @owl
Feel free to make an exploratory offer on the Pashley. Thanks for the mention @spj7. It's been a good bike.
I have a friend who is about to sell a Carlton courette in really good condition..Same model as this one but with flat bars.
Hello - reactivating this as another friend has asked me to help find a bike. Very similar remit, looking for something mixte/step-through, nippy light rather than weighty and stable, ideally vintage but in good condition. Budget up to £250, small size as she's 5"3. Cheers
I have two nice bikes but slightly pricey :P
Tokyo fixed dream machine 48cm and All city nature boy 49cm
Cheers for the thought, but don't think either are step-through? She is specifically after something at least close to the description...
I ve some thing vintage but with a seized seat post. It should fit.
Sounds interesting, could you post or dm me some pics? Cheers
Hello, I have a very nice mixte that I was just about to put in the classifieds.
It's called a Caput (named after a rider), and was hand-built in a small shop in Paris in the late 70s.
It's fairly light - about 9.5kg I think and has good quality components.
I'm in Belgium at the moment, but will be in central London for the weekend and could stick it in the car. Otherwise I could post it for about £25 when I'm back in the week.
I was hoping for £190 - would need to stick it in the car at lunchtime tomorrow if I'm going to bring it!
It's prettier in the flesh than it looks in this photo - horrible lighting, horrible carpet, magnolia walls...
Also, I'll replace the front tube tomorrow!
Still looking in case anyone's got anything else they're looking to offload? Cheers
@bitterbuffalo has this on sale.
Still got the 48cm dream machine or the nature boy?
have posted on your thread
Ah, that's lovely, but this is for a friend, I don't have time to build up for her and she won't want to do it herself. Looking for complete bikes really. Cheers
Once again looking for a bike for a friend - same criteria really, step-through, lightish weight, something like the peugeot mixtes you often see....
I guess bikes are in high demand at the moment, but just bumping this in hope rather than expectation...
