Picked up my first retro machine today, and was looking for some advice and guidance. Im far from a cycling novice, and even now run a bikeshop, but im aware there are others on here who are very knowledgable on these matters.
Ill sort pics as i can if required, but basically, its a GF AL-1, blue, and as far as my research goes, i think its 91, but the 91 catalogue is hard to find.
So not only do i not have an original spec list, i believe it was uograded at the time of purchase, as it has anodised blue Ringle hubs, skewers and seat qr, an Xlite ti bar, Rockshox Mag forks in gold and i believe possibly an xlite post.
Structurally its good, no cracks obvious, but its had some scuffs recently, and could do with a respray of both forks and frame. This is the easy part.
I just wondered if anyone knew of which parts, gear wise especially, would be proper to refit, as its had a recently (well relative to its age) fitted xt rear mech and grip shift.
Im not sure whether to try take it back to more appropriate parts, or just possibly ebay it, if its going to be prohibitively expensive to do?
Thanks in advance.
