''exCELLENTcondition''.. pics tell a story and excellent wouldn't be within a country mile.. show the mods your membership number.. that bike hasn't seen a clean or lube in many moons.. OH and its easily adjustable to down size , maybe take 10 mins or less... just my take.. will

Why so aggressive willcee? Unnecessary to be so unpleasant. Ctc used to be a supportive & friendly bunch

It just looks like it has come back from an autumn ride. But are you sure you want to sell it? It could take a shorter stem and the bars would go lower if that is what you want. Or is the stand-over height just a bit too much for you?

Apologies to anyone who feels ''offended'' but I don't suffer newbies advertising wares on probably the straightest cycle forum on the UK net with lots of decent users , its known to be somewhere where there are buyers who have means , so punters turn up with various yokes that sometimes look as they have been trailed out of a hedge backwards and think that they can disguise obvious to an experienced eye lack of condition in the pics with a few flowery words ,and a membership valid or not..you may be angry or even agree with me, I don't really care..with respect, as someone who has bought, worked with and sold many motorcars , motorcycles and bicycles I speak as I find, on here or stood right in front of you .. will

A very sad looking and neglected machine.You,ve only got to look on ebay to see your competition.Give the bike a wash at the very least,clean wheels tyres spokes hubs and ideally the whole transmission to give yourself a decent chance of selling.Drop it off at my gaffe,I,ll do it !!! :wink: :wink:
