    What's the price limit for the scrapheap challenge? Going by the prices being asked for rusted up junk better put a $10000 limit on it

    I have wanted to do a scrapheap adventure ride for at least 8 years and the first time it was possible, due to work was 2020.
    Still waiting.
    But during that time I have accumulated enough sub $1000 bikes, I shouldn't need any more.
    So I'm told.
    But you can never pass up a bargain.

    It couldn't end up half as confused as that pair of Ossa singles in the blue thing above.

    I think that unless that thing lifts itself on startup like a Citroen it's failed on all counts.

    Looks like hydraulic motor driving front wheel, maybe the same at the rear.
    It would be a bugger on roundabouts. images (11).jpeg
