    Hello everyone from rainy Wiltshire!

    I'm a student who loves cycling, I've got a Saracan Tour1 and an old Steel framed 531 lugged town bicycles. I've had many others, I've done them up, sold them on etc.

    I like whiling away hours in my workshop tinkering, restoring and fixing vintage bicycles.

    Currently looking for a summer project so message me if you have one!


    Thanks, Alex.

    Yes I've hunted eBay locally, nothing apart from a Dawes Discovery which I'm going to have a bid on but fear it will go past what I want to pay...

    Whats the one in your spare bedroom!? :-)

    No idea what that is haha.

    Is it a road/racing bike? That's what I'm after. Or possibly a town bike
