I have been hoarding this for a while, whilst on the hunt for a '89 MF courier comp, thought i might only score a frame. As it turned out I got a complete bike, so dont really need this anymore.

I know this Groupset was only available in 1989, so can be a bit difficult to track down, so I hope i can help someone out

Front mech is Deore LX - no idea why - it all came of the same bike, cage is bit rubbed

The right hand thumbie clicks nicely, but moves on its mount, so dont know how well it would work when set up so consider it spare/repair. Left hand is fine.

All the rest appears to be in good usuable condition, the chainset and rings are nice, the cantilevers are really really nice, very, very similar to M550, but with a lovely matt black finish.

Rear mech is good and tight, jockeys are good, but its a bit scratched in the normal places.

Levers, mounts, hoods are all tidy

£50 posted the lot

P.S.

I can also bundle in the built up wheels that go with this lot, for not much more, but it might impact postage costs, so happy to discuss.

Really interested in the chainset if you are tempted to sell it separately.

alesa made in Belguim, i started to clean them just to give an idea of what they could be like

Well now it really would be rude not to, you're a gent - I've been coveting something like this for a long time! :D the rear axle is bent in my Maillards so these will be perfect and I can spend forever searching for a replacement ... then I've basically got enough for another bike! :facepalm:

I'll drop you a PM now for payment/postage etc
