thanks chesterbell, I had a look at your topic when I was researching. I've just got my frame back from the powdercoaters. It's a similar blue to the original but it's funny how bright it looks compared to the original. I think when you see the frame on it's own it just looks brighter anyway.

I'll post some pics of it later, still need a bottom bracket and headset.

I would suspect that the bottom bracket you need has a JIS taper, not ISO like Campag. A Shimano one is the easiest way to go.

just seen this on ebay. is it a good price?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SR-sakae-silstar-chainset_W0QQitemZ160364577829QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR?hash=item2556794425&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

it gives me options and I could keep my old chainset and replace the cranks or use this one.

I bought an sr version for £15 last week and thought it was a bit expensive but I have no idea of the value of this chainset... i suppose 20 max is about right although it is in mint condition...

I believe I had a left crank leg break on me on a TA Silstar. Maybe it was something with that make. I still have the crank but not the left pedal leg. Broke right in the middle. Crazy pedalling home that day.

if the bars aren't too deeply scratched you can very carefully polish it out with the abraisive sponge blocks you get at DIY shops use fine grade and take your time, this is very useful in removing anodizing on bars stems too them you just polish with autosol etc for an as new finish!
