puuh that fork is wayyy to high for that frame. Sell the fork and get an Obsys or something like that and it will probarly be a lot better then a bike available in the shops today...

looks really tidy, would love to own one someday.


No, fork is fine, a little marginal OK but not wayyy too high. It handles like a dream anyway, the steering is really sharp and suits my (slow) riding.

Obsys = no thanks, I don't really like having to take it apart every week LOL (I have had a 55 and a Carbon). I reckon Obsys were the prime reason for Sunn's demise in the late 90's. Brilliant ideas but poor execution and simply unmarketable regardless of how much marketing money you spent (and they spent next to none).

Cheers.

Nick

My wife will kill me for wanting it :lol: ....but I desire another steel sunn...... :wink:

Hi, yes 20'. Would you consider a part ex for the Ti, maybe frame only?

Sorry no, the 19" ti my pride and joy. I have posted pics of it here along with the KHS team.
Just ordered a load of ti bolts for the exact from the UK; stem, seat post, d's, chain ring bolts & crank bolts.
The exact ti morati hc 1.3 is a rare bike I have seen a few come up on e-bay though.

Conrad

The Sunn stays are a copy of the morati HC 1.1 or 1.3 stays. Actually Morati made the sunn ti frames for years both road & mtb. Still really high end frames that still demand a premium price.

See my pics of my exact ti 000

Hi guys,

I have just acquired a Commencal frame so I'll be rebuilding the bike over the holiday (and switch to discs unfort.).
I will therefore be selling the frame and the full XTR brakes/levers.
I will also be selling the X517s or maybe just the hubs which are black Brubz3 in a great nick.

Will be posting in the appropriate section but if you want to register an interest, feel free to PM me.

Cheers.

Nick

Yes that was me. I looked after the re-launch of Sunn in the UK (+rep for the South) from March 97 until Sunn France went into receivership in 2000 and was made redundant... Did we meet at the time?
Your only chance for parts is in France, maybe a dealer or ebay or ad in Velo Vert ?
