    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.
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

    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.

    Hi All,

    I met King of kadence today. He picked up the bike and I made him promise to post some pictures of it when it is again in riding state.

    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.
