Buyer responsible for shipping. I can assist with shipping details on my end. Bike must be paid in full before shipping. As a courtesy, I can deliver the bike up to 15 miles after bike is paid in full.
One final note. Please be aware that this is a 50+ year old British bike. You should have mechanical skills to own and maintain an old bike like this. Things will break and need adjustment. I do this for fun and I’m good at it. Please don’t kid yourself. This isn’t a Honda.
