Selling because it's to big and it's 51cm...must be a midget

I know what it is to be a midget, but it probably would,t take me 30 years to wake up that the bike is too big :D but its well equipped.
I tip it will go for $700 odd?

Yeah I reckon $700 is about right, though you never know when the fever will strike :)

Someone will know. These Bennetts are Sebring-related, correct? Post-Sebring, from memory. And they are most likely 4130-grade, am guessing. In pretty good shape though, for anyone in Lower Hunter.
Points to the guy for wanting to 'pass it on'; and price realistically.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Little bit confusing this bennett....for starters they where never 2 toned. Its not "quite" the specs of a sebring , also sebrings had a decal on the downtube, I'd say its a super-sports2...?
Always loved my bennetts , noticed a mint super sports sold for $245 last week on evilbay, it wasnt worth that new !
The Bennett supersports and the sebrings where around from 1979 to mid 80s, the Viscounts where the sebrings grandfather in a way. The Sebrings are similar in spec to an apollo IV, ie shimano 600 etc....
Nevertheless the red-yellow bennett is a bargain. Cant go wrong.

Nice. A bit banged up but it is built from Reynolds 531 Pro. Very nice tubing.

Ahh, the old 'yes, I'm crazy' pitch. Always associated with quality merchandise.
Not to mention Comic Sans font and four different colours

I quite like the 700c rims and 26"x1" tyres. This guy must know his bikes.

Tim Shaw's looking like a staid old merchandiser, in comparison. :lol: The steak knives are looking like a good deal.
