Free frame for bodgers (GONE)
« on: April 14, 2008, 07:59:05 pm »
Free to (y)ACF bodgers. (Collect from Birmingham)

I was given this bike by a girl at work a couple of years ago.  She'd had it in her shed for years and it's rather rusty.  I've finally admitted to myself that I'm not going to get around to fixing it up so I need to clear it out.

531.  21.5" from centre of BB to top of seat tube.
Rust everywhere, but it doesn't seem deep.  You'll need to blast it and respray.
Wheels are history - the spokes aren't SS and are are rusted.






It comes with everything in the picture - saddle, handle bars, etc whether you want them or not.  ;)

I finally got over to Brum today.   We sidled off for a pint of Black Sheep before I took ownership of my new project and bade Basil farewell.   

A rare pleasure to meet you Basil and many thanks for the bike.

Basil has a most wonderful Mercian Super Galaxy  ;D

I like the orange anodised chainring.  Oh, wait...
Never tell me the odds.

Actually, it is anodised, not rusty.   Very impressive.

Oh bugger.
I was just tidying up my photobucket stuff.  Pages and pages of old pictures that are no longer on other sites - like ACF where a lot of threads seem to have disapeared.
I deleted these pics too as I thought the thread was long dead. 
Next thing I know it's back.

Sorry.
