Another one added to the collection: Pre-production 1992 Dyna-tech Diablo 'Show' frameset

Cheap ebay purchase & didn't realise it had been for sale on here until speaking to the seller (PeterPerfect)

Spent this morning stripping it down to just the frameset ready for de-grease, wash, polish & wax.

As suspected the steel seatpost is stuck :facepalm: so currently upside down with a seat tube full of penetrating oil.

After cleaning off the swarf on the bb shell I spotted what looked like a second serial number almost completely hidden by the plastic cable guide.

Upon removal it revealed SB9551 (my David Baker race frame is SB9786) so definitely a custom Special Products build, which ties in with Peter's knowledge of it's previous history as a Show frameset.

The plan (once the seatpost is extracted) is to remove the badly scuffed & peeling "Dyna-tech" & "Diablo" decals and replace with new copies.
It will be built up with period XT gears & cantis plus best of British - blue Hope Ti-Glide wheelset, Middleburn, X-Lite , U.S.E etc.

All the removed serviceable parts will be donated to the local bike building charity.

The wheelset,Campagnolo Aconcagua rims on Alivio hubs,are super smooth & good overall condition so will probably appear in a for sale thread in the next few weeks.

Cheers
Dave

Any ideas how "retro" this Raleigh Jersey is? Hong Kong seems an odd place for a large quantity of retro raleigh jerseys to turn up.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Raleigh-Retr ... 8428011a1f

I've been thinking about it for years on and off, but I've finally reached out to two local companies that make team / club cycle clothing to see if I can get some blue / black Dynatech replica jerseys made up 8)

OK, I'll add updates on my quest for Dynatech jerseys to this thread, hopefully this week I'll be able to report something positive.

Lockdown induced boredom & eBay are a dangerous combination.....

Bought this 1992 Quantum yesterday afternoon & should arrive by the end of the week :D

Is it a member's on here? - not seen it in the for sale section

Looks like it just needs a good clean & polish & the MAG 20 lowers stripping & re-painting.
Not sure if the Uno stem is correct?

Nearly got all the Dynatech models I want, just after 2 more (ok maybe 4):

1. 1992 Ogre (purple), had a stunning one 8 years ago but was too small so sold it to a member in Germany :facepalm:
2. 1993 Hybrid XC80
3. 1992 Diablo DX (yellow) already got a 1993 Diablo DX Plus (white)
4. 1991 / 1992 in Team blue & yellow

Steve is all well and good, lives not far from me and whilst not spoken to him personally in a bit, he's still active daily on the old FB, shall I pop him a message to get him back on board?

Caramba Kid, nice collection... had to double check that some of my Raleigh stash (below signature) had not been raided with your latest posts haha! I might have to get the whole collection out in the nice weather this week for a complete group collection haha

Gorgeous Dynatechs! What's that last one? it stands out as having an the old style seat stay / seat tube join and colours, but the new style top tube cable routing.

Thanks Tomas !
He helped me identify a frame last year - but it was a PM he responded to. I’ve since built my RSP 400 up to a very nice spec and enjoying it immensely.
And very very beautiful set of Dynatechs you have there my friend, very impressive - and I second that - especially the last one

Great to see this thread updated with new pics of collections and new acquisitions. Thought id add my '91 Endeavour that's nearly complete.
Just the bullet shifters to sort and campagnol crank caps and pedals to source.

Frame # BO5078
