Thanks gents, hadn't thought of gaffer tape.
I had a puncture repaired on my car and they placed a small piece of rubber into the hole and sealed it with some kind of liquid rubber. I just wondered if there was something similar for bike tyres.

I always carry a couple of inches cut old tyre with me when I ride as Ive had a similar thing and had to repair a tyre a few times. Just lay the old tyre inside behind the hole and reinflate. Air pressure keeps it in place.

changed my tires to continental gatorskins back in Feb, use them for a daily commute through central London and haven't had a puncture since - high recommended

Couldn't look any more stolen tbh. Bike broken up into parts and the seller has one feedback.

That start time has now inspired me to get up and ride in time for the sunrise at the Devil's Punchbowl.

Not about being a bike expert is it, timmbo? Renovated or not, if it's arrived with a fault then the seller's responsible for it, not you. Obviously if you're intending to keep it regardless then you could get it repaired locally and request the seller to pay for it or at least come to an agreement for the costs to be shared. I wouldn't wanna be doing it myself.

I'd like to keep it - I don't know whether something like this is easily repairable. Is it just a case of putting a bit of touch up paint on it, or does it need to be stripped and resprayed?
