    Knew it would be that one, it’s not sold for over a month, I can’t imagine why!

    That bike has been on and off eBay for a few months. Sometimes the purple bits are painted orange for added 'Wow'.

    It's not as wrong as this.

    I think that bike will hang around for a while... This is quite odd "This bike does NOT include the front brake."
    That saddle as well :shock:

    This was when it sold in January with the lovely orange hand-painted bits.

    This is the second time it sold in January.

    I wasn't sure if the purple chain should be considered an upgrade from the orange chain or not. Does a purple chain increase the value? I'm confused.

    If you remember from your schooldays physics, darker colours with the exception of red, tend to be faster,, black being the absence of colour, the fastest of all.

    So a purple chain would be a speed improvement.
