Clearing out the old bike shad and have found a few items that could be useful to someone else wanting to build up a retrobike.

Control Tec stem, black 1 1/8" 135mm reach, 0 rise

Flex-stem, gunmetal, 1 1/8" 135mm reach

Proflex 955 full suspension frameset, polished alu, 18"

Answer 25" 50 sweep, 30 rise 7075 alloy hanflebars

Any idea what sort of prices I should put these up at?

Cheers all - Tim

flex stem £8-10 posted

955 £70ish posted - depending on condition and rear shock

Those are the sort of prices that would attract me anyway.

Always hard to say though - you may not get that sort of money if nobody wants that particular item on that day as some of these things are quite niche.

I might have had that 955 at that price a few weeks ago, but currently have too many other things on the go.

I think pics would help to as no one likes buying blind.

It's not a light bar, it is however an extremely STRONG bar (look at the tickness of the metal at the end)

$5 USD. These are very nice stems but get no respect.

Will keep the Control Tech as it really is a beautiful work of art.

Why is that? I've always liked the look of them & if they are half as good as the 'post I had, I'd be well pleased to use one!
