My post about this bike has been pulled by the moderators due to the fact I defamed the guy, I should have said in my opinion the guy is........etc.
Oh, and received a warning.
I've tried to play by the rules, occasionally I slip up, maybe I'll just stick to myself in future.
No harm done in my opinion. The mods are just doing their job. This site has a standard and they keep it on track. No one has died............ I really appreciated you doing what you did because I was thinking of bidding, up until you showed all of us what was really on offer. You can now say you took one for the team. Top job.
Thanks apology accepted(if thats what it was)
Yes Wal, no issues here
Unfortunately the issue is what he posted about me after a 5 minute conversation

=>> Wal42 my specific thanks for your efforts & offering your experience to inspect and then inspecting on my behalf, it really was very much appreciated.
For those considering this item Refer to the listing "photo 10" above the down tube shifters 10-20mm from the head tube lugs. The extra photos taken and provided by Wal42 clearly show the stress lines in the frame tubing paint with rust onset. Also note that turning the item upside down released rusty water from the Head Tube and the Seat tube.
On Flea Bay:

This is a general admin note - obviously related to the removed post.
Please be conscious of what it posted - while each person is free to retain their own views and opinions - I would ask each member to be conscious of what they post on this public forum, including in this thread where there is a high dose of opinion and preference.
- Take note not to make it personal, whenever the character of a person is challenged this only causes upset.
- If your wish to share criticism of an item, keep it factual and informative and be conscious that it is does not become vindictive, unfair or unreasonable.
Even though the T&Cs in this site/forum state that each member takes responsibility for what they post - I am still first in line and usually suffer the brunt of the reaction if there are problems. Please consider the tens of thousands of hours that have been spent creating and managing this free community forum and what it means to spent more time managing such problems rather than ensuring a positive, active forum can be retained.

Notwithstanding this, it may be prudent to amend the listing, in light of what you now know regarding the overall condition of the frame.

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.
Sorry, quoted post was a couple pages back - The RD & brake levers look like shimano adamas, part of the early 80s shimano aero gear, cranks look like they are also this model which have an interesting splined bottom bracket and external facing bottom bracket cups.

The term "Old - Mid - New School BMX" annoy's me as much as "fixie" does these day.
