• £10 on eBay, 6 miles away... done.

    I cannot say no, I even told the wife I was off to get it and she didn’t take any offence!

    Some very dark country lanes later and it’s home.

    It’s in very good condition and is now the perfect candidate for a colleague of said wife who‘s bike was recently nabbed.

    Budget, £50/75

    Plan,

    Cruiser bars
    Comfy grips and saddle
    Slick/semi slick tyres
    Guards
    Pannier rack
    Front rack / basket
    Full clean and make happy.

    Brakes and gears are working, headset and bb good.

    Needs a new inner brake cable as it’s a bit rough, no sweat!

    Looking forward to this one, did one similar 18 months ago, £10 Dawes + £30 = present for a wife’s mum friend desperate to get out more with her son.

    Oh.. and it’s actually a Ridgeback Outback ... eBay description accuracy!

  • Brompton tow truck is a win

  • Was spot on! I think most bikes would have struggled where I did with the debris, mud, gravel etc!

  • Today’s haul!

    Hopefully find some time to get her built this week

  • Progress!

    Managed to get all the parts on last night, just doing the brake pads and set up as we speak.

    Collection 3pm tomorrow, let hope she likes it...
