1982 Raleigh Europa 12, in the process of being converted to fixed wheel. My initial response was to give it a good clean and rebuild it but it was well shagged.

    A somewhat different class though Pete, can't really mention them in the same sentence :shock:

    A gift, I had to extract it from a load of festering rubbish and bin bags. The owner even lent me a spanner to get it in the car.
  • But not in as bad condition as this, seen on the pier at Coney Island

    It would have been interesting to see what could be salvaged.

    Nowt wrong with Salvage.I think its great fun finding an old bike in a skip or at the tip.Paid a fiver for an old Dawes a few weeks ago.Load of useful parts for my main projects.Frame was a gas pipe model so it has been returned to the tip for recycling.My best most recent gift was a late 1950's Mercian.That said I think the handle bar stem is well seized. :x
