Has that thing been shrink-wrapped somewhere? :|

Minty looking Focus sport touring bicycle for sale, with gorgeous matching pannier bags. I'll throw somebody a pineapple for the panniers if they don't want them. :wink:

Or is it a re-spray? Otherwise, why is it missing the down tube and top tube transfers?

Son's just moved to London, so am on the lookout for him for something to get around on. Might as well be something classy. Am I imagining it, or are these things undervalued compared to OZ? Maybe Brits like last minute bunfights. :|

Make sure he has a decent lock and knows how to use it!
It's true decent non-iconic (ie Hetchins etc) retro bikes are generally cheaper in the UK. There are a LOT more of them (also remember the prices are in Pounds not dollars :wink: )

I am still laughing at the "sponsored links" on that item - apparently what you need to accessorise that bike is some grease & 3 G-strings - hope those aren't "personalised" links :oops:

I got the same. Maybe you need the grease to get the undies on?

Yep, I get the Pounds thing. And good advice on the lock. Because it's so decentralised there, the market must be limited if you're in a Midlands town, say. Probably cost the same again to BritRail to pick it up. :lol:

And didn't even notice the sponsored links. Something wrong there. :oops: Actually, the pervasiveness of Big Bro reaches a tail-eating stupidity. The Athena Campy gets somehow linked to the Athena Super scant knickers for 'sponsoring' purposes. :?: Say wha...?!

Have you tried the LFGSS forum classifieds? Lots of really interesting stuff thrown up there, and usually not too pricey either.

Not sure if I trust the seller. Just copies text and pics from other auctions?

Dodgy as all hell, his account has only been open for a couple of weeks and he's selling 5 frames. All of them with the photos taken in different houses or just lifted from manufacturers websites.

Yep. Been emailing with Frank here in Briso who has it for sale and said I could go and look at it. Ignore the Chinese option....
