Tandem for sale in Ashfield in Perth

Postby drubie » Tue Dec 18, 2012 9:27 am

Hey western australians - I'm on a quixotic quest to grab a possible junk bike from Gumtree that's located in Ashfield in Perth.

Difficulty - I'd need to get it back to Armidale in NSW somehow and I'm not sure it's still for sale. Is anybody in that area that could recommend a courier?

I'm kind of thinking I would buy it and try to store it somewhere while we worked out how to get it back to us here in Armidale.

cheers,
dave.

drubs, ive used smartsend a number of times, sending, wheelsets, frames, and complete bikes. Id say youd be looking at about $100 at least due to size (length) of the frame, and addition weight.

im sure there would be a fellow WA-BNA-er who could hang to it for you, maybe ride it around a bit untill you make arrangements :mrgreen:

Thanks jaseyjase. I haven't managed to get a successful phone call to the owner yet so I'll see how that goes first

I live in Bayswater, just the next suburb over. I could probably pick it up for you and store it until you could arrange for a courier to collect. Let me know :)

That's very generous meesh. I still haven't managed a successful phone call though it always seems to be engaged!

Not that generous, it's not like I'm offering to pay for the bike - heehee! :D

Wouldn't be a problem though - it's close by and I have got a garage to lock it up in. So if you ever get in touch with the seller and make a buy I'm happy to help you out.
