Hey guys, i am Hywel from South Wales, a 20 year old product design student (as you probably guessed from the username!). My brother's partner brought down her c5 yesterday, and i am looking to do it up and restore it to its former glory! It has never been used, but has been stored badly and so has a lot of cleaning to be done, the battery is shot and the hand grips have been gnawed through...
Any advice? Despite my searching of t'internet i cannot find where to get replacement grips or the price of them, and am having trouble cleaning the beauty down, what would you expert recomend?
Just took it out for a pedal run though... goes like a dream...

perhaps you should look here for the quick bits you want, maybe ebay you cannot find other bits for, its part of the fun of getting a C5 working,beyond that i cannot give you anymore advice

Hiya mate and a warm welcome to the forum

Email me an address and I'll get some handgrips on their way to you - I've got a box full of them. As for cost, the first round is on you when you attend your first meeting  ;D

As for cleaning , personally I use Cif bathroom cleaner and a 4" paintbrush with the bristles cut down to make it nice and stiff...gets the Cif into the grainy finish without causing any damage  ;).

Scuffs and scrapes can be reduced by careful use of a sharp blade and/or wet'n'dry sandpaper.

The emphasis here is on "careful"  8)

Hi everyone

I'm Dave and I'm here on behalf of my uncle! He's inherited a C5 from his brother. It seems to be ok but we thought I'd join the group to get some info about what to do with it, uncle might even keep it as he wasn't left much else!

Basically before we decide what to do what should we look for? What might go wrong with it, if it hasn't already? You'll know the type of things we need to look out for.

Thanks

Dave

Welcome to the forum Dave, sorry for the delay in responding but you've caught us at a busy time - Martin just moved house and I've had some IT gremlins  >:( Service pack 3 and Virgin upgrades equals a very frustrating time  :-[

Take a look around the forum and feel free to ask about anything you're unsure of.

You're always welcome to pop along and try out our loan C5 (aka Dave  ;D) to get a feel for the beasties.

As for your own C5 I'd recommend sorting the basics first ; connect a 12v car battery and see if it runs. Let us know how you get on and we can take it from there.

Hey guys and gals.

I'm Steve, currently living in Wells, Somerset - but hail from Cardiff originally.

Considering replacing my 21-speed Saracen Ikon Full Suspension mountain bike for a Sinclair C5 - with a few mods.

Would you believe the C5 is actually only just younger than me by literally a matter of 2 and a little bit months??  I gotta get me one of these babies.

Hi Bert , nice to meet ya  8)

If you need any help with your C5 you know where we are  ;)

Dont forget to post some piccies of your C5 in the gallery section - I'm quite a fan of modified C5's  ;D, whereas I think Martin is more the traditionalist :D
