Yep. I've seen members from Saudi Arabia; Great Britan, Ukraine, and other places I can't think of off the top of my head.

If yuo are in the UK, you should also check out retrobike.co.uk, which is a UK based classic bike forum. It is more MTB biased though. Whereas here the focus is largely on road bikes.

If you were in the USA and that orange Condor is the bike in question you'd probably have it sold in minutes, not hours.

But...

Retrobike is probably the place for you to be if you're looking at buying and selling.

Absolutely, just like our bikes.

Great handle, can't believe it wasn't taken yet, fantastic.

Welcome aboard, glad you found us, you're in the right place, a finer lot of enablers you will not find.

You will come to realize that you can't just sell off a bike until you have enough that you should sell some off but can't bring your self to do it.

I still recall my middle school English teacher disagreeing with me when I told her I ain't got no need for her class because I can already talk in English. She replied "you don't have a need for my class". I thought I easily won the argument but a few years later I realized she was correcting me so I guess I did learn something.
