A note about our used bicycles. All Items are genuine vintage and whilst in full working order, may also so show signs of age or own some distinguishing marks. As well as these signs of character  there may also be some signs of rust (faint and few) and some signs of mottling on the chrome. Where possible we have tried to show these on photographs. These small imperfections are commensurate with what is expected of a bike of this age.The bikes are not new.

You will be buying a used bike, so please be aware of the following;

 

This bike is in a good condition and looks excellent. It does have a few marks to the paintwork, a little on most tubes - it does not detract from the bike.

I have preffered to leave these marks to enjoy the bike's character.The price refelcts this.
