This Apollo XC.26 is the first bicycle that I have been given to refurb and resell. It isn’t economic to pay for a mechanic to do the work as the cost is usually more than the bike will be worth afterwards. However putting my time in for free will hopefully save another bike from heading to the scrapyard.
It needed quite a bit of tlc to remove the rust, clean it up and then replace the worn out parts.
It also got a full service including the wheel hubs, bottom bracket and headset.
So after the addition of new brake blocks, new chain, new rear tyre and new cables all round we have a really nice bike ready for the next few years.
Ready to sell for £60.00
