I'm selling my Christiania bike now that I've finished giving it a spruce.
It's one of the raw steel frames with a short box. Box is varnished wood not painted black. It belonged to a family with two young girls before me so the box has some stickers on that I haven't removed, they should be pretty easy to take off.
I bought it about a year ago but need something faster for work.
It's got a nexus 7 rear wheel which has just been rebuilt. Front wheels have been trued and tensioned. It has newly fitted Deore hydraulic brakes fitted along with new Shimano rotors and new brake mounting plates.
The gear cable should be replaced as it's not shifting as smoothly as it could be, I'm supplying a few replacement cables. Brakes are bled fine but calipers need realigning.
Both pretty straightforward jobs.
Spares it comes with include:
-Prairie and Bugatti covers & arches
-Shimano 3 speed coaster brake rear wheel (no push rod or sprocket)
-4 spare spokes & nipples for the front wheels
-2x mechanical locking brake lever
-The old mechanical brake set (pads are worn)
-24" Inner tube
Located in Sydenham
can it be used for kids instead of cargo?
Sure can. It has a small removable seat/bench with seatbelts installed.
Did you buy it new or second hand? In second case, how old do you think the bike is?
This a Bike not a Trike?
I got it second hand. Previous owner had it from new. It's roughly 8 years old.
Trike sorry dude, didn't know they did a 2 wheeler actually.
I've still not finished sorting it out fully. Should have new brakes fitted tomorrow. 2 people still have 1st and 2nd dibs.
I'll do a full update with pics as soon as it's serviced and saleable.
Original post updated. Trike is now for sale!
Is there not two dibs? If not then I'll happily throw my hat in. My offspring has just outgrown his seat so perfect timing.
So am I second dibs?
I suppose yes, I remember thinking that two people had showed a serious interest but I only have one message inbox, everything else is what you see in the thread so no more actual 'dibs'
So yes, you're second (Y)
Only managing to get 3/4 pics up at a time..

Final drop to £660 before I sell this elsewhere.
