Okay some advice if I may
I picked this up the other day for not too many pennies. Condition wise it's in good shape. Only minor faults are the original muddy fox leather seat has the wear through on the wall corners and the top cap is missing off the mountain lx left thumbie
the only changes from original seem to be a new rear wheel with a non descript rim but a joytech hub..and the crankset is a non descript shed type
Bearing in mind these do not sell for big money and as always on retrobike keeping in mind everything is for sale at some stage..what cheap crank set would you reccomend as a replacement and where can I get a thumbie mountain lx cap or do I need the whole shifter ?
The wheel I'm not to bothered about at this stage
Closer pics of the cranks are needed but the CC was actually fitted with quite a low rent Exage Country set (about 300LX level) so it my be this that is still fitted, otherwise a 300LX set would be about right. As for the shifter a top cap can't be purchased but I have a reasonable condition LH LX shifter you can have for a fiver if you want.
Wheelset would have been Araya rims with some early 7's hubs (with possibly an early screw on freewheel), I don't think the LX kit even made it to the hubs as the bike that baz77 has also has fairly non-descript hubs too.
It's a nice bike and a good frame, cheapish overall bike that brought 21 speed to the masses earlier than most.
