free dutch built bickup in menlo park(Bay area)

Hello this is my first post.

Do you want to pick up my old bike. It works a bit
I wanted to put it in the trash cause i bought a new one.
This bike is over 30 years old i think

If you are into a thing like that you can come and pick it up for free

Wish I lived near you! Does this bike have any brakes fitted?

Well done for making such a generous offer, I'm sure one of our forum colleagues will really appreciate it.

Where I live (Vermont) it is a time-honored tradition to place things in front of one's house with a FREE sign on them. Generally anything is gone within an hour - within limits.

Hi All,

King said hed pick it up.

There is a working coaster break
I looked it up, this bike is probably 50 yrs old so i think it would be a shame leaving it to the scrap metal guys.

I was going to drive more than 350 miles to pick it up then I remembered how I ended up with an Univega Activa. I needed to rebuild a rubber block pedal, just one. I had a junk pile of English 3 speed parts and I couldn't find enough parts to rebuild a pedal. I couldn't buy a pedal. I couldn't buy parts to rebuild a pedal.

I still salivate at the sight of an English 3 speed, even yours.

The King is on the case. I picked up the Magneet from Uniekje(thanks Uniekje!). It's a bit worn, but very dutch. The bottom bracket needs sorting straight away. I plan to clean it up and use it just the way a dutch bike should, as basic transportation. It's isn't missing anything besides the pedals, generator, taillamp and bell. The chaincase is interesting as it's made of vinyl, and has a small tear in it.

Here's a better photo.


wiring goes through the stem


dutch goodness
