This site is not commercial but I need somewhere to put the occasional bits that I get rid of. It is not maintained regularly and currently (summer 2013) I hardly have time to maintain my bikes, let alone sort out bits for sale. However what is on the page is not sold and there are records of past sales for reference.
I also get occasional requests for use of my content (and I get very annoyed when I find my stuff uncredited in other blogs and social media) so this page has a contact form for requests to use my stuff. If you are a blogger, cyclist, campaigner, media person etc. I don’t normally say “No” but I would like to be credited and linked as the source. For commercial use – ask and we can discuss!
I have a cycling collection of my own that goes back 35 years, and I seem to have accumulated quite a lot of old kit from earlier years that must have come from my dad. including some classic British like GB and Williams. Its not scrubbed up to look beautiful like stuff on E-bay but I hope occasionally I can fill a gap in someone’s collection.
With the growing retro and classic bike scene I hope that some of it finds a good home or it might just end up in a skip. (At least that is what I have promised my wife.) If you like anything here and want to get in touch please use the form at the bottom and I will come back to you quickly, I don’t want to put phone and email address up on the web.
