    Free because I doubt I'll get anything from it and I have a new bike.

    Owned it for 20ish years. Never been serviced, so will need a strip down. and regreasing etc.

    I changed the brakes to better ones, so they're fairly new.
    New Shwalbe Jet tyres. Will another pair of Ritchey Speedmax tyres.

    Collection only from Keighley

    Please note: Garmin holder not for sale. Didn't take it off before photos were taken

    Looks like you could turn it into a fixie pretty straightforwardly if you wanted to go simple

    No, I'd keep it as original as possible.
    That rear mech is still available, it's a Tourney iirc. Ditto most other parts.
    Old MTBs make a very nice ride.

    I bet you could pull some sick wheelies on this.
     
  7. If you just want shot of it, and it's in rideable nick, you might want to consider this charity, I think you can drop bikes off at Halfords.

    I know absolutely nothing about them apart from having heard of them once or twice. This is not a recommendation or endorsement!

    Looks like the poor old Westcoast is going west then! Seems a shame thought someone would want it as a pub bike.

    No good to me but surely you're going to take the serviceable parts off first?

    Nah. Now that I have a new bike, I couldn't care less about it.

    Problem is it weighs as much as the West Coast. Of Africa.

    I had one of these and last week donated it to a local charity in Bury that helps people back into work by getting them refurbing bikes and selling them on at low cost to financially disadvantaged people who need transport.....see if there is something similiar in your area
