Easy LFGSS crew - perhaps a slightly lame listing by some of your books, but worth a try perhaps?
I've become acquainted with a neighbour who is in the house clearance game. He's got a good stream of bikes coming through at the current moment and I'm helping them find new homes.
I'm not a mechanic. Most of these bikes require some light work but I'll be pricing them as to reflect this. By all means correct me if these prices are wrong - I want these out the door to make room for more! My contact is a really nice chap and I'd like to help see him some fair cash for his work, so please be reasonable.
If you need any measurements/testing doing, please don't hasten to give me a shout.
Collection will be from Walworth Road, SE17.
So, first up - we have an ORANGE 'Clockwork' MTB in decent condition! With the wishbone seat stays and some Deore LX components. £40.
Next, a nice Raleigh Caprice step through with the glorious Liz Peperell floral decor! I had a quick go on this and it rode really nicely. I have to double check the situation with the gears as I've just been told they might be the old type which require a back-pedal to instigate. The tyres are in great shape considering the age, while the wheels show a few signs of surface rust. This bike comes with a little old pannier. £70.
Also a bit rusty, an Apollo 'Wayfarer' folding bike. Rear brake will need some attention (it's not clinching). Again, the tyres are in decent nick. £30 for a quick sale?
Lastly, an old Phoenix town bike with an extra top tube. Both of the brake mechanisms aren't currently working, and the thing does also have some surface rust. £40 take-home value for anybody?
Hopefully more to come soon! Thanks for your time.
@t0-ster orange? :)
Out of interest do you know what seatpost size the orange is? Got one and haven’t worked it out yet
I'm moving pretty hectic this week but will look into it when I catch a second!
Could come pick up the orange tomorrow if still available
If you could that would be brill, no worries if you don’t find the time :) thank you
Waiting on confirmation from Sterobe - if not, it's your's.
dibs on raleigh caprice if it's not already gone! pm incoming
It's your's! Will drop you a message in just a second.
The Orange is up for grabs once more. Unfortunately I can't cater for first dibses - it'll be first come first served! My number is 07956 853 538 to keep things simple. Cheers!
Orange is now SOLD.
Any takers on the others?
Folding bike is SOLD.
I'd be happy to see another £80 for the Phoenix and Raleigh combined, so if anyone wants to work out a shared purchase between two people to cut costs on one of them, hit me up!
Phoenix and floral Raleigh now SOLD.
Fresh through the door - a lovely French Bernard Dangre. Some rust to the frame, brakes both need adjusting (I have tools here on Walworth Road if you want to ride it away). Dynamo also needs a re-fit, otherwise rides quite well. £60.
Also, a later Raleigh Caprice step through. Dynamo also needs a re-jig, rear wheel has a small kink and the rear brake will need attention. Cheap! £25.
PRICE DROPS -
£40 for the Bernard Dangre! Lovely moustache bars and a very decent Marathon rear tyre. Not to mention a glorious frame - can't go wrong!
And £20 for the Raleigh Caprice comfy pub bike!
What size is the Dangre and does it have a dynamo or need one (guessing it’s the ‘milk bottle’ type)?
Don't think there's dynamo I' m afraid. Apologies - I've no idea r.e. the Milk Bottle terminology!
Will get a tape measure to it when I possibly can!
Next up, a very old 'York' single speed with a truly luscious geometry. Reluctant sale! Pedal back brakes. Starting at £80 so as not to shoot myself in the foot!
And an old Giant ATS frame with a decent set of cranks and beater saddle. Worth £40 to anybody?
Apollo step through (gears need attention, currently s/s)- £40
Folding bike - £40
Nice ladies bike with Sugino components and fresh bar tape, needs a saddle - £50
Marin MTB - sold as seen etc. £40 starter project for someone?
Neat, cheers. The dynamo is the one that runs against a tyre, looks like a little bottle :)
York and Raleigh folding bike both SOLD.
100% accepting offers on this stuff to get it shifted - come and lowball me!
Marin MTB - £20.
Giant frame - £20.
Apollo step through - £30
Nice ladies bike only missing a saddle - £35
Dangre - £30
Utter bargains only still here due to the empty pockets of January! Tell yer mates!
Any bikes you don't sell for whatever reason, you could consider donating to https://thebikeproject.co.uk
I'd be all over that Marin if I hadn't already taken the Orange off your hands!
Bumping for a good seller anyway...
