This is an amazing RETRO bike and rides lovely and smooth. It has scratches, scuffs and rust spots due to its age, otherwise it is in perfect running order. The bike really looks fabulous. Once seen the first person will buy.

It is collection only, but if you want me to arrange a courier then I will work with you to get the cheapest. My mobile number is 07891269277 if you require any further information.

Happy bidding
