Wanted: Vintage Road bike/racer

What've you got? Sorry if it's in the wrong place mods... wasn't sure where to put it.
Got a limited budget so nothing worth loads... also must be fairly close to dorset, although i can travel if it's really worth it, thanks

Best bet is to find England's version of Craigs List (last I looked, Craigs List is not very popular there) and post a wanted to buy vintage bike ad.

eBays always got lots of great vintage English steel for "pick up only" Local bike shops are an even better resourse.

I find an awful lot of bicycles each year using one or more of my Bicycle Finding Procedures.

Hope that is a help.

Try the 'preloved' website as well. There's often a few bikes at much better prices than Ebay.
