That's not dead.  It's resting.

I admit, it looks like it might still be used.  But the sea air has ensured it is pretty terminal.

The basket is dual-purpose; turn it upside down and use it as a saddle replacement.

I knew this one was in trouble when I came back two weeks later and noticed that the front wheel was *still* parcel-taped to the stand.

I can't decide whether to post this here or in the unusual bikes thread.

I think it's the result of an error at the MoD purchasing centre just across the road.

Getting there.. Spotted this in the bike sheds last week:



Dunno whether they'd had an off that morning, but I wouldn't be surprised if it'd been like that for yonks.

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

It's like the old joke about doubling the value of a Lada by filling it with petrol.
"How do you double the value of a BSO?"
"Put a saddle on it."

If the saddle is a Brooks, you've probably tripled it,

What most of these are crying out for, is one of these:

If an object is obviously abandoned, is it still stealing to forcibly take it away?

It's more alive in its death than many BSOs are in their life.

Dead, but I don't think it was a BSO.

RIP.

Question is she holding the saddle that used to be on the bike she is riding or is it a spare?

That wasn't a BSO: I spy a spoke reflector.

Odd that the tyres are removed and the bike locked up.
