Ayup retrobike folk,
1st post (on a forum ever) . . . I've joined as I'm finally starting to appreciate some of the older bikes, both road and MTB. Even attended my first cycle jumble at the weekend and left clutching various retro parts all for under a tenner. Bikes in various states of restoration and advice may be needed
. Aside from newer bikes I have the following lurking at home:
1. 2000 Stumpjumper FSR Sworks with pace RC40 forks
2. Early 90s Marin Eldridge Grade ready for fresh powdercoat. Nice fluro orange forks and flexstem.
3 A couple of 70s MKM 531 road bikes. One good with 600 arabesque and the other in need of TLC and respray
Life's regrets . . . getting ride of:
1996 Specialized Stumpjumper with RC 36 forks
1980s Saracen Conquest with biopace chainset/brooks saddle . . . gave it away!
Right . . . I'm off to check out parts for sale for my Marin project.
