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.

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.
