This bike is an absolute gem. Steel frame with Shimano 12spd in superb condition. This bike has been lovingly cared for, the paint work is a beautiful metallic green, the bike is in original condition apart from the new 27 * 1 1/4 tyres.
Have been able to identify the groupset as Golden Arrow gruppo which was the precursor to the 105 range, and dates the bike to 1983 – 1986.

Raleigh Misty

This will go to the happiest girl at the Sustainable Living Expo. It’s just a wonderful girls cruiser with whitewall 20″ tyres, comfortable riser bars, mudguards and rear rack. The old style single speed with back pedal brakes and chain guard makes this easy to ride and super low maintenance.

20" Trials bike

You’ve seen it in the Mercury and our article, so our thanks to Cassy O’Connor and Nick McKim for getting this lovely ladies bike ready. Classic ladies step-through for a comfortable ride, with guards for the odd splash you’ll get on a rainy day this is simple fun cycling.

McBain's gents classic

McBain’s is one of the great Hobart bike names and this is a classic mens bike. Old school single speed with back pedal brake, and guards. It’s a beautiful green with it’s Kevin McBains stickers it’s an authentic classic, not done up or messed about with – just a great bike for cruising.

Trek 2300

The start of carbon. Carbon tubes with aluminium forks, integrated shifters, clip pedals and computer.
This is still a great ride, you’re probably not going to race it but for some serious fitness riding it’s going to be an unbeatable deal.

Specialized Hardrock

Great mountain bike, the perfect starting point to cross-country trail riding or just a versatile and reliable hardtail for kicking around town.

Road Chief

Mr Reliable, steel frame mens 10 spd of which there are hundreds. Why are there so many still around? Just because the work, they keep on going with a minimum of fuss and you’ll cover the km’s with ease. We’ve given him a bit of a clean up, adjusted the brakes, wrapped some yellow bar tape on and you’ll be able to ride this till the cows come home.

Peugeot Course

Have we saved the best for last? This is a bike for the ages. A top of the line Peugeot Course – as in race – from probably the 70’s (checkout the crowns) with Reynolds 531 tubing and Brooks leather saddle this is light and straight and beautiful.
Still with it’s Made in France stickers this is an authentic cycling classic (a word I may have overused on this page). Have a look at http://cyclespeugeot.com/PX10.html for some history of these special bikes.

      you’ll have to trawl the internet and see what you find. sometimes you luck upon devotee websites which can be very helpful – I once found a complete peugeot catalogue and process to confirm ID of year and frame this way (and then lost the address…..)
