Do you, a relative or friend have an old bicycle or a box of parts stashed away in a garage or shed? Depending on brand, age, frame material, the fittings and of course the condition, they can be worth a few pounds up to hundreds of pounds. People buy them to ride as is, restore to original condition or renovate them as “fixies” (single gear bikes) or just to get the parts for an existing restoration project. Of course you may have a bike you no longer need after upgrading to the latest and greatest. Please try and sell it at our auction. Look at the Cycle Auction Archive to see what was for sale in June and September 2014 and at the June 2014 Cycle Auction Report and September 2014 Cycle Auction Report to see the star cycles and what they sold for.

- We are also advertising locally: village shops, pubs and our own cycle hoardings which are moving around the Winchester district.
We have used Itchen Abbas Village Hall for several years. Its conveniently situated midway between Winchester and Alresford, and 10 minutes from the M3. It has good parking immediately outside the hall and in the hall side of the industrial units above it. The Trout should be reopened by September. Please buy a beer from them if you use their car park and please park in the top section of their car park.
