I picked up some very good condition black Topline cranks off ebay for £40 delivered, which I was pretty pleased with. Complete with original box.

Also an Ofmega Premier front derailleur for £11 delivered.

picked this up today alpine..something..stars.

cro-mega i'm sure but unsure what seperates the LX/DX/XT thing, apart from components. same f+f?

anyway i paid small dollar and, just as well! nothing works and needs a repaint. fortunately no dents or detected cracks and enough original parts to keep identity true.

ser: P11701401.


This is just heaven to me, a do-er up-er. next year a build thread may pop up. after letting go of the 1992 cro-mega, which was spanking good in every way, i was always going to try pick up the non-scaffold tube one, here it is....................

That's really nice mark, I am a little jealous as I've been after a cro-mega for a while.

The guys at the LBS STILL haven't got the old shop cleared out yet. They had to rent it for another month so they can finish. Most of the back room has been sorted. Picked up a few trinkets today.

Today's tally:

NOS Suntour XC friction thumbies+cables and one NOS right thumbie (late 80s?)
NOS Tioga Psycho Edge tire
NOS Exus Ti 737 spindles
NOS Onza Ti spindle replacement kit
NOS Bomber steerer
NOS Ritchey cleats
NOS Ultegra pads
NOS Scott AT-4 bars (2 more MIA)
NOS Syncros Cattlehead steerer clamp
M900 brakes missing some springs+sleeves/covers
1 non cracked Onza HO brake
bag of step-down ferrules
bag of Shimano canti replacement springs/covers (a dozen?)
Zoom 1 1/8 cable hanger
1 1/8 WTB top cap
Some used Shimano road pedals
Shift socks
Tioga Disk Drive manual
Marzocchi XC 500 fork
Vintage Haro T and 2 Syncros Ts

All in all a good day. Can't wait till they start on the back-back room. :D
