I'm kind of assuming that whoever fitted it used one the right size, though ;) Wouldn't be surprised if the Cane Creek was off a Superlight.

Great choice in bikes, I have Xizang and Heckler too.

My 92 Heckler is still my main MTB now. Whoops, I should update :cry: but it still love riding this bike and that is what matters. I do need a bit more time on it lately.

I still have one of the early Heckler's delivered to Australia but the frame is now a garage ornament for now. It is about a 97 model. It normally didn't have the lights + hefty SLA battery installed though.

Eagle eyes can pick the transplanted parts from Ol' Yella to Big Blue.

SC really hit a bullseye with the Heckler and Superlight. They are just lots of fun to ride and easy to live with.

Hi Sean,

They are White Brothers SC90's with experimental MX80 fork boots. Good idea at the time since they need a bit of regular loving to keep the foam rings on the seals moist. Great forks though.

What sort of state was it in around the welds to start with?

I need to know the best way to polish in the welds to get the dullness and corrosion off of mine.
