Re: Claud Butler Majestics

Without seeing some actual pictures giving an idea of value is hard but somewhere between £60 - 175 each depending upon condition and specification .
There is a market for older retro bike's although it's not as strong as it was say 3 years ago
Where in the country are the bikes located ?
