The rest of the groupset is 90s Chorus so a good condition Chorus one would be nice :wink:

I don't mind what year really but it does have to be in decent condition :)

Cheers
Steve

I have this, but already stuck it on Ebay yesterday.

It's Record though, 80s or 90s? I'm not sure.

Record so probably not what you're after. But I've hand-polished it up very nicely and it is pretty good condition, though does still show a few marks here and there. Engraving is nice and perfect on it too.

Sometimes when seat posts have been polished it can take its diameter down. I know someone who had his polished and it took it down from 27.2 to 27.0.

Wow, was that some heavy polishing, use a machine or by hand?

This was just lightly done with some ultra fine wet and dry and polishing cream. I'm tempted to get some calipers to see if it's had any effect though.
