Anyone want some used spheres?

Postby morningglory » Thu May 18, 2017 5:52 pm

Just changed all my spheres and don't really know what to do with the old ones. Anyone interested?

Postage will be about £25 then how much are they worth on top of that?!

They're a bit flat but not bad (4 years/20k miles). Not got a pressure tester but thought someone might have recharging equipment. Can't see what else to do with them except bin them or weigh them in (huge, garage door knobs? weird robot boobs?). Got the accumulator as well but I'm pretty sure that's kaput.

Ta,

Joe

Sorry mate but I think they're fit for the recycling. New spheres aren't that much really.

Agreed with Tim, I have untold dead spheres in my garage not much use to anyone really, cheap enough to replace and bin the old ones, sometimes even cheaper to buy new than have the old ones re-gassed.

No worries, personally I only ever fit new spheres from the sphere shop, £120 for all 5?delivered isn't bad value and they're top quality.
