Ventured up into the attic the mornig,to list what bits from various projects were known to be hiding.
The tally ended up some what embarrassing .
9 pairs of various coloured mudguards[Blummels mainly}.
6 pairs of tyres 27 x 1/4 and 26 x1/4 other odd sizes 26 x 1 3/8 .
4 frames complete with forks .
Handlebars for a Raleigh Bomber{.I dont even own one!!}.10 other pairs of handle bars ,ranging from flats to drops.
Wheels !!!!! good grief.... :shock:
I think another bike jumble table mabye required :roll:

Tomorrow the shed :wink:

    I must admit I'm tempted to off-load my entire collection. I don't have the space for them, and now I'm back racing I don't have the time to spare to restoration either.

    I'll probably keep 1 bike, mostly likely the '79 Holdsworth 531 Special, as it is the most practical to use - but I'm afraid the 30's and 40's bikes and collection of parts I've built up simply have to go.

    The question is do I jumble or ebay or offer the items as a whole to a well known ebay seller?

    The thing is Gavin,one day you may have the time and the space and you will have got rid of all the bits you spent ages trying to find..I know what saying about space.I have 3 Carlton frames ready to build + all the parts for them.Trouble is complete bike takes up a lot of room :lol: At a recent jumble I cleared a load of frames and parts .I am trying just limit myself to unusual designs,so the Caltons will have to go :cry:

    or simply list them here, or send PM lists to the regulars. At least they go to good homes. (gosh that was a subtle hint)................
