I can't believe the amount of bids on it, 8 days out!


Tried to fix my link, but go with the one above. I bought a rideable 3spd dragster a while back for $50ish with al original parts (and a fair bit of chrome pitting). How can this one be at $46 already, there is no banana seat or sissy bar and the BB is surely siezed.


how? two words: TRACTOR GRIP!

If this person took a selfie, he'd get his left ear and half an eye Colnago
Near Griffith. Visit Cocoparra National Park while you're there. Try not to get shot.
... wait, I get it. Bad back. Can't bend down.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Bit hard to make out details from the photo, but would probably be a pretty good pickup.

PM Spirito. I believe he's handy to there, might cost you a good red, though.

Campagnolo mirage ( might be athena brakes and crankset) - nothing really special but would be a nice rainy day beater for the campagnolo inclined.

The plastic levered Mirage brakes are absolute rubbish though - flexiest brake lever ever made.
So we get the leaders we deserve and we elect, we get the companies and the products that we ask for, right? And we have to ask for different things. – Paul Gilding
but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.
