Mongoose bike part of council cleanup - restoration project

Postby ILMB » Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:09 am

Hi

Our council is having a general cleanup day, and someone has chucked out a sad looking Mongoose bike.

However it may be a gift for some restoration enthusiast.

Pics can be found here:

PM me if you would like me to rescue it from the heap.

Cheers

I can't see any pics. Is it just me? I couldn't see any on your Chatswood thread either.

Thanks for the feedback.

Maybe you know what I've done wrong ?

I've posted them to a folder on my Hotmail Skydrive, and made the folder public to anyone with the link. Signed out of Hotmail to see if I could see the folder and omages which I could.

Is that enough? I will try and share each photo individually as well, and post each photo link separately

From what it looks like in the pics the saddle is possibly the most uncomfortable ever made. I have one, from a cleanup special, and put it on one of my 'other' bikes to get it rideable. After the first 10min ride I started looking online for an alternative.
