There are some new bikes on the Trips for Kids pile. A matched pair of Peugeots with Mafac Racers and a matched pair of Gitanes with Mafac Dural Forge. Info below on how this works.

-----------------------------------------------------

I volunteer for a group called Trips for Kids. They provide mountain bike rides for kids as well as other social programs. They fund themselves by taking donated bikes, refurbishing them and selling them. Older style bikes are often sold "as is" and failing that, they are hauled away as scrap. Many of them are indeed scrap, but some are basically nice but not great old bikes. To try to save them, or their components, I'll be publishing photos of items for sale for CR members to review. Any proceeds are for TFK. This is just an extension of my volunteering.

Every bike, or any of its components is $25 plus postage. If you want the whole bike, $25. If you want the brakes, $25. I'll strip and pack whatever people ask for. The flat rate means the more you take from a bike, the better the deal is, but of course, the more you take, the higher the postage is.

I'll send more photo's on request, as well as answering any questions as best as I can. Everything is first come, first served. Once a bike has earned its $25, anything left will be free and the photo comments will be amended accordingly. Typically I'll keep the bikes out of the scrap heap for two weeks, then back they go.
