Hi folks

Had a look at these four bikes that I have been left by my friend and two of them look like ordinary Raleighs (501 tubing) that I wont bother you all with. One of the others is a PT Stallard that has nice wheels but the only thing I can see on the wheels afe the letters AS. The tyres say Englebert on them and have got a funny tread like that looks like >>>>>. The saddle says Mansfield and looks like a "racing" saddle. There is only a front brake and the only other thing I can identify are the Philips pedals. They are a sort of quill? type.

The other is a Holdsworth but it is in pretty grim condition. The wheels say Weinmann and they have concave rims instead of the normal outward bulge. It is a fixed gear bike as well. The chainring at the front is a bit unusual-it looks like two fly's eyes with another eye underneath! The brkaes are Weinmann sidepulls and the saddle is a Brooks (looks like Champion Sprint or something but it is a bit worn.

Hope all this means something to someone. I would sure like to know if this stuff is decent quality because it is going to take a lot of work to get it looking good again!

Thanks for any help
