SOLD: faulty Brompton 6 speed

Postby rbrian » 25 Aug 2019, 9:11am

2007 Brompton 6 speed, with faulty SRAM hub. Green with black extremities, front luggage block included. It is quite low mileage, tyres have plenty of tread, brake blocks in good condition, has been stored indoors, but abandoned for a few years. There's no rust that I can see, but it could do with a full strip down and rebuild.

It was skipping gears, sometimes losing drive entirely. I took it to the bike shop, they said it couldn't be repaired, and I'd need a new rear wheel. I took it apart myself, and found nothing obviously wrong, but had a large spring left over during reassembly. :roll:

This would be good for a modification project, or restoration. Fundamentally sound, but needing work, so offered at the low price of £300. Collect, or could deliver in Aberdeen.

Thanks for your interest everyone, as Fossala was first, their offer has been accepted. I wish you luck finding another - the price for new ones is much higher than when I bought this one!

I'd take if you'll post down to Cornwall.

Cornwall is as far away from Aberdeen as possible! It won't be cheap to post, I'll leave this up for a week to see if anyone closer wants it - as it's not in perfect condition, I'd prefer the buyer to see exactly what they're getting.

If nobody local wants it, I'll let you know.

I've had an offer for full price, the buyer will pay postage. That's what I'll likely go for, unless Fossala will pay? I'll wait until Sunday, and if nobody local wants it, then it's between you two. Perhaps I should have asked for more? Ah well, it's done now.
