Important Info

Life on wheels offer no warranty on any vintage products however, we carry out a comprehensive structural and mechanical inspection prior to any bike being sold. All bearings are stripped and regreased and the bike fully serviced. Please look at the images of the bike carefully as they form part of the description. In some cases, new tubs are included in the sale where the original tubs show signs of cracking or other age-related issues. Life on wheels do not accept responsibility for the road worthiness of any tubs supplied with their bikes, it is the new owner’s responsibility to check and confirm them fit for purpose prior to the bike being used or ridden. We do our best to correctly identify any components listed are from the correct groupset type and that the framesets are dated accurately. Occasionally we might make an honest mistake, so please ensure you look at the images provided.
