Bike cash for gold

Fans of daytime TV will be familiar with those cash-for-gold ads. If you have old gold hanging round the house that you haven't pawned yet, you just ring them up and they send you a padded envelope. You pop in your unwanted gold, send it off, and by return they send you a cheque for a quarter of what it's worth.

For this all-solid-gold bike, for example, spotted on High Holborn yesterday, you'd get about fifty quid. If you could find a jiffy bag large enough.


  1. This post is in particularly poor taste. That's a ghost bike (but they were right out of white paint).


  2. How is one supposed to tell? It's just dumped in a public place.
