Wanted - aluminium frame
« on: February 14, 2017, 07:52:24 PM »
A bit of an odd request, but I'm after either an aluminium frame or fork. I'm planning on stripping the paint off the five and polishing  or brushing it to give it a new finish, but I want to try doing it on something a bit less pricey before I do the five.

I'm after an old frame, doesn't matter if its bruised / battered / broken / Tristan'd, so long as it has some paint on it I can try stripping off.

Does anyone have anything going free or cheap?

Thanks guys.

I don't have anything to hand right now but I'll keep a lookout in case any written off bikes come my way.

Yea i'll have loads around.  You can have the rear end of the orange Orange Alpine with the crack in it if you want.

The only one I've got spare is my old Klein - and you're not having it. (Even though it worthless and takes up space!)

I'll have the alpine swing arm if that's ok Trist, should be the same powder coat and alloy as the five so it will give me a good idea of the finish I'll get. Can I pick it up in the weekend?

Sounds like you're sorted, but I have a broken seat stay you can have.
