A note about our vintage velo's

 

Item is almost vintage and whilst in full working order, does shows very few signs of age , there are very few some signs of over-use , it is in an immaculate condition and has been well loved by its owner. After careful , scrutiny I advise the following , very tiny indentation on the cross bar and some small signs wear on the Brooks Saddle. For a Used bike of 22 years of age, this is as near to new condition as it can possibly get, the original owner, whom you might describe as a Gentleman of Cycling, had bought the bike new with the intention of riding it, which he did on only a few occasions and then, only in near perfect conditions. Other than that , he considered it just too good to ride! To give you an example of how little wear this bike has had, the tyres ( original Gator Skins, appear brand new and there is no evidence of brake rub on the wheel rims and just look at the rear cassette , it looks new!!!
