The Bike

Most people when then set of on an expedition go and have designed an expedition bike

Not me !!!

I am looking to put together an “E BAY ” bike by  putting together and designing a bike that will be versatile , take me round the world and will be very very cheap

After each item you will either see a ? which means open to suggestions/ still investigating   or the word “check” which means I now have this and ready to go
