• I've now split this - everything is listed for sale here
    (minus F&F and Kashimax TT protector which sold already): https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3296­17/

    I've decided, due to numerous factors (incoming baby, new house, need ££ toward replacing stolen MTB), that I need rid of my lovely Banani track bike. I spent a fair bit of time restoring and acquiring parts. Before it hung on the wall and I never really rode it again.

    Details of it's restoration are here: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/2323­80/newest/

    Banani Pista frame and forks.
    Built in Compenhagen Denmark by Banani circa 1978.
    58cm seat-tube x 57cm top-tube CTC (58.5cm seat-tube center bb to top of toptube)
    17.cm headtube length

    Undrilled, full chrome fork. Partially chromed frame.

    Hardly ridden (like literally twice around Viccy park) since I 'finished' it - been hung on my wall for the past few years gathering dust since. So it's in mint condition still.

    Collection in Leyton E11.

  • Stunning!


  • £650! Thats a bloody bargain. Tempted myself if...

    1. It wasn't too big for me.
    2. I didn't already have a fully restored track bike I never ride.
  • £700 to you Chris

  • Classic Nasty Ben behaviour, I'll feed it to your cat this weekend.

  • Stunnah

  • It’s my size and I live within 2 miles of a velodrome

    So much want but zero need.

    It is an absolute steel steal.

  • So tempting, think i would be single if i bought another track bike though

  • I live within 2 miles of a velodrome

    Wtf mines in a different country!

  • Hold on...

    "I spent a fair bit of time restoring and acquiring parts."

    Pretty sure I bought it all for you.

  • That’s where I live

  • That is nice.
    Top tube and head tube length?

  • I said acquire, not bought.
    Also, you're lying anyway.

  • Will measure when I'm home this eve to double check...

  • @Zerostar - I just updated original post with more accurate sizes.

  • Price drop bump. Some one take this before I move in a month..!

  • Just keep it. That’s way too cheap. Put it in the loft.

  • Beautiful

  • Price drop.
    Plus, I could be interested in splitting this, if there is interest in F&F and enough of the parts??

  • how much for frame and fork? interested in that . . .

  • Beautiful bike. Cranks must be worth at least a third of the asking price! Crazy bargain.

  • @gubhi - I could go for £225 frame and fork (+ the Campag Headset thats in there.)

    Will add some prices up there shortly, on the other bits... See if I can rustle up some interest.

  • I’ll take the frame fork and headset off you no doubt

  • I'd be interested to know how much you'd want for the cranks. If only to dispel wild thoughts of buying them :-)
