For Sale: Dawes Wildcat Retro MTB (pub bike / commuter)

Posted on
  • Lovely old 80s/90s MTB, Reynolds 501 with 531 forks, no rust, frame is in really great nick with virtually no rusty spots. Components all in great condition, with a new-ish GRX BB, I have been told. It's currently running as a single speed, but with a 6 speed cassette and a derailleur available (included in price).

    It's a small frame and would ideally fit someone between 5'5" and 5'10". Top tube length is 55cm.

    Originally purchased from @sacredhart a few months back with great ambitions for a commuter conversion which sadly have been abandoned due to some life changes! All in all, sad to let this guy go, a really fun little bike which would make an ideal pub bike or commuter conversion.

    £150 ONO, looking for a quick sale having been thoroughly mucked about by some potential buyers. The bike is in E17, but also happy to meet somewhere along the Victoria Line or the Liverpool Street-Chingford Overground branch.

  • Lovely! I rode one of these to Switzerland in 1987, very comfy ride.

  • Ah been eyeing this on FB for a while

  • Still available. £140 ono.

  • FYI has been taken down from all other sites! Before I'm flagged for this.

  • I did check and figured as much, no worries!

  • @sacredhart would you mind saying what height you rode this bike at?

    *edit: poor wording, how tall you are basically../

  • I'm tempted to buy this back.

  • I sincerely hope you do as I definitely have no where to keep this but can't quite shake the idea that I need to join the 26er life

  • This is rad. It's like a useable (as in not scared to ding it) version of that orange Mercian MTB from a while back. So cool.

  • PM'd

  • What a turn of events! Despite much interest, it is still available.

  • Ah sod it I'll give in, will send you a pm to ask for some more deets (:

  • Sold for £130. Sorry folks!
