I have an excellent set of Manitou 1's for sale, freshly rebuilt by myself, so fresh in fact that I havent finished them yet!
I have rebuilt quite a few of these now and these are by far the best ones I have come across, I dont think they have ever been apart.
They have been given my usual treatment, totally stripped, degreased, each part lovingly (!) restored, new seals, new elastomers, reassembled and cleaned again ready to go.
I am advertising these before I have finished them because I can offer a few options on the steerers.
You can have them crownless so you can bolt them into your existing one - £45
The original 1 1/8" 175mm threaded with correct crown - £59
1 1/4" Manitou 1 crown with aluminium threadless steerer in any length you want - £59
Loads of various 3-4 crowns with different length threaded steerers, let me know what you need - £50
Or if you want to do a px with your set that need an overhaul then I am hppy to do that too.
Pics tomorrow if needed.

I mayhave a spare 1 1/8" approx 180mm long. You could use headset reducers

Hey Jonny Retro!

I could well be keen on the 1 1/4 Manitous for the Funk. Do you have a pic to hand?

Not for me, I'm chasing for a friend of mine. Best would have been a Woodman Saturn 1'1/4 - 1'1/8, but not possible to find in France anymore.
