mmm tempted for sure
You know what "they" say about temptation, Yield to it ! To be fair its probably only me that says that.
The problem in the past has been the cost of getting anything across the channel but l have a contact with a van who does the trip now and then and he is willing to take things from time to time for a reasonable price. Just to say that from my point of view there is no hurry and the bike will be available anytime because l am not going to advertise it.
This is an absolute steal, right? Someone talk me down.
Talk you down? On this forum?
Can anything sold on Gumtree be trusted?
The first one you provided the link to looks to be totally original ... still the right chain rings and even the stem. A good buy.
Yes agree to that , i got in touch with the seller of the second one and it sounds like someone has painted over the lower section of the forks and it might well have a frozen seat post
Nice shot in stays for £75 bin
Raleigh Road Ace in Mitcham. ends today:
oddly set up ratty Aende £90 in Kennington, London. (stolen?)
That Aende is an absolute bargain wish i was nearer or seller offered carriage
It's an amazing price but I fear it might be an absolute steal. The same seller is flogging a locked iPhone with the claim, "I found it on the street, called the owner but she had called the insurance already so she wasn't interested in collecting it." hmmm...
I watch various item categories on Gumtree, most especially caravans, motorhomes and classic cars. As a result of this I normally send in somewhere 10 & 15 complaints each week asking for them to be withdrawn as they are very obviously fraudulent!!!
ratty Merlin (Bob Jackson) £120 BIN in Huddersfield:
Looks like a shed find.
A 'racing bike' in Richmond, London for £10. It seems to have a Brooks saddle.
It's gone within 2 hours - I'm not surprised at that price.
