1991 alpinestars al-mega
Thanks big.eck, I think you are probably right. From the information I have read on this site I was thinking it is a 91/92 cro mega or al mega.
Now the hunt begins for parts! As a 'gold trader' do you have any tips for sourcing bits for this bike or have any to sell?
when i had my 91 al mega i was told the bracing at the headtube was only found on the 91 al mega . the cro mega was made from cro-mo steel and the al-mega was alloy .
best bet for parts will be in the wanted section as theres loads about and people will come to you , the hardest bits to find will be the front mech with the tiny half moon shaped nut to mount it and the clamp to use canti brakes .
they ride great but i'd be stripping all the paint off and checking for cracks as they do crack everywhere (and i mean everywhere)
before i spent any money on it
heres a pic of my old one
good luck chap
