Not sure if anything is sellable, or if anyone can make use of these bits.
The wheels are ok-ish though!

Basically, tried to refurbish an old bike from a barn for a friend, but a toothless rear mech/bent front mech finally put it beyond economical repair.
The thick tractor grease saved it rusting though...!!!

This has really tatty paint and a bent rear mech hanger I've discovered!
It's a Scott windriver circa '89.
Small/medium, "Tange double butted", cro-mo
Rear U brake ( Shimano U matic ) on top of wheel below seat, with cable via a noodle around the seatpost.
Front brake Shimano cantilever and purple Tektro brake booster.
Bottom bracket newer cartridge ( not original cup and cone )feels ok.
I've re-greased the 1" Headset and it's ok.
An early Sella saddle atop a Madison seat post.
Deore DX mech missing a couple of teeth off the top jockey wheel and the front mech cage is bent.

The Chainset is probably original Shimano ( marked Shimano ), therefore I'd guess DX.
It is 170mm cranks and biopace chain rings!!

Can anyone use anything here???
Basically cover postage + £1 or pick up in Exeter area!

Grip shifters, 7 speed.
They work, despite the rubber grips being sticky and horrible!

Brake levers:
Tektro canti's, dinky 2 finger levers in reasonably good nick

Suntour Bear trap pedals.
The bearings feel slightly snicky, so probably need a re-grease, but by now i've lost heart!! ( and won't ever use them )
The old classic curved ends to them.

These are a much later add-on to the rest ( and i might keep them.... )
Joytech hubs 32 spoke, laced onto Rigidia rims, with matching q.r's
All in black, including black spokes.
I think they are disc wheels with a 6 hole disc attachment on the hubs.
They have rim brake surfaces that look unused.
The hubs feel ok, but the rear does need a little t.l.c. with a spoke key.
The rear has a sram 4,0 8sp cassette on it, doesn't seem to have any movement when rocked... seems ok.
Front hub identical to rear but has lost it's Joytech sticker.
I think these can make a good wheel set, as they appear to have had little or no use.
Any offers?

I'm not out to make much here, just wondering if anyone has an old project needing summat or wants to hack about an old frame.....

mail me if interested
