What kit that you've owned do you wish you'd never sold?

Fortunately I'm a bit of a hoarder, I rarely sell anything, espeically if it's interesting. With one noteable exception...

A Moutain Cycles Pro Stop Disc brake, complete with Accu Trax fork and bullseye hub.

This was a few years back mind, but I wish I'd kept it now.... :cry:

How could you ever sell the fork/disc combo if you never sell anything interesting!? To be fair they were/are probably regarded as crap, but look at it, they so impressive!

I sold a Barracuda A2X to a friend who then used it for trials!
(team colours, Tange Ultimate, full 1994 XTR and Manitou 3 forks).

I still have the certificate of ownership that Barracuda sent out to all the owners though.

to be fair for such an early disk brake the pro stops actually worked okay. the noise of the floating disk rotor really annoyed me.. & it was on a mates bike not mine!

Bah. Tell me about it. To be fair it was in 95, I was a student and I needed the cash to put towards a set of yellow Judy SLs. Like scant said, they worked OK but rubbed all the time.
