A couple of questions, if I may.

What colour is "Bomber Orange"? I'd like to repaint the lowers on my Z1s and I may do my Kikapu frame to match.

The steerer on my forks is threaded, but bolted to the crown. What is the best way to replace with a threadless steerer of decent length?

Anyone know where to get a new set of decals for them?

Thankski verski muchski,
Adey

Oh yeah,
Anyone got a spring suitable for 200lb-kitted rider? I think the stock spring is up to 185-ish?

Windwave have been the UK distributors for Marzocchi since the dawn of time (almost), they've helped me out with old Z1 parts previously, its well worth pinging them an email on sales@windwave.co.uk

Love the ST orange (had an ST2 in grey- fast as a bastard)
No joy at CRC (new website is not very usable...)
Photos to follow, currently riding a Liteville 601 in Morzine...
Cheers
Ade

Hi Gruff,
I assume you got the decals from Gil_M?
Did the Easton Tubing decal come from somewhere else?
Just been drooling again over the U'Hu :)
So far I got planned:
Polished front triangle, gun-metal rear
Z1s (although I have a mint set of Judy DHs... Decisions, decisions...)
Just found a piar of NOS X517s in a shop in Morzine(!)
XT hubs
XT Vs and geartrain, except for Middleburn cranks
Photos when I get home:)
