A place for those keen on vintage and retro bikes - steel is real.

My neighbour was throwing out his old bicycle that he thinks he got for his 14th birthday - 30 years ago. So naturally I took possession and have it at my place.

I'll post photos tonight - it's a Master Sports "Monaco", steel of course and looks to be about a 56cm or bigger TT. Mostly all original but its been stored outside for ages so it's a bit rusty in places. Rear derailleur says "Suntour Honor".

Master Sports were an Australia company owned by Motor Spares apparently. This thread over on ACF says they stopped producing bikes in the 60's. http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8818

Anyway, I'd like to offer it to a club member / valley wheeler if there's any interest.

If nobody in the club wants it I'll post it up on ACF.

No takers anywhere so it's off to the Bower I guess.
