FS: damaged BIANCHI road bike - Take a look!
Ok guys, here it is-
Used to be my regular ride back when I did a bit of cycling around the hills here. Live in sheffield for most of the year now (uni), so I don't get to take it out much these days.
It's been well-used... lots of scratches/chips along most of the frame, but mechanically still works fine.
Here's the problem----- there's a crack developing in the top part of the headtube. I thought this was just the paintwork at first but chipping a bit of the paint away sure enough shows that the frame does indeed seem to be cracked (see pictures). Maybe there's a way to secure it using some sort of welding/ring combination. I don't know.
With a full repair/frame replacement though this would be a solid bike for starting out or as a backup.
Bought about 6 years ago for ~£500. I'm looking for £200. Any offers welcome!
Any questions regarding the technical specification - just ask!
