The house is where the good bikes are kept (along with the Dobermans). We sleep in the nuclear fallout shelter.....

That house with the large bike collection demonstrates that someone theoretically could buy the Canberra bicycle museum collection and store it in the elements!

Wow that 'Challenge' frame is a stunner Kukamunga - great to see another classic bike saved from the crushers! Any more pics of that frame please?

I will probably try to sell this bike at the upcoming Bicycle Swap Meet at Abbotsford Cycles on the 24th May. I will be asking for more than what I got on ebay for the 'Wentworth'..... :?

From the very little I've heard about them most Puchs ride well, whether they are worth much is another matter. I've got a Promenade ladies bike in the shed that's been waiting for about 3 years to be restored.

Christ almighty. So much XT. The pickings in hard rubbish are better than on Gumtree/eBay it seems.

My wife brought this home from Willoughby. Not sure if it's retro but judging from all the rust I guess it's pretty old. New models are for sale on-line with grip/twist shifters; this has a thumb-shifter. Indi-Australia Rambler. I got it running and converted the basket to a rumble seat for the kids. We had a blast riding around the local park.
