I picked up a bike off ebay because it was stupidly cheap but have no idea what it is. It has flybikes stickers on it but googling the numbers off the bb doesn't throw anything up other than something for wethepeople and it has some salt components. Is there a good website to use? The numbers on the bb are; JUSTICE BI - 2199 and HB0TA02112.

Thanks, was starting to think that from my searching (and the word justice stamped on the bb lol) but then was thinking why someone would put the stickers on. Any idea on the year? Based on google images and the seat it's looking like 2010 or before but other than that I wouldnt be able to spot subtle differences. Bought it just to beat up while re-learning and it was only £10

That's gotta be stolen. No one would sell a bike they paid for, for that cheap.

Maybe but maybe it is someone who just inherited it and wanted it gone? I see that around here on occasion.

I picked up Profile Wheels for 100 bucks a few years back of CL.

It was a guy who clears houses, sheds and barns for people that had it on eBay judging from the rest of his listings.

The advert said it's not safe to ride as there are no brakes, not much tread on the tyres etc. and when I picked it up his front garden was full of old bikes and other shit. He probably paid half that for it if anything at all
