Hi,

I have a Rory O'Brien, 1988, 531, Shiamano Ultegra, Look pedals, Cinelli bar stems and Seatpost, Mavic MA40. All original since purchase. It has been in use all this time and still used now. Could really do with a respray but does anybody know where to get Rory O'Brien transfers and the 531 seattube stickers?

Cheers

Keith

Lloyd's have some Rory O'Brien transfers (and 531) listed which could be the correct era for you -

Have a look in the catalogue and give Nick a ring to check availability. I've just ordered some Dave Russell ones from him.

Wow, the old chap looks like he's done more mileage than the starship Enterprise! I love prestige bikes that have done a couple of orbits until the owner says in surprise....
" Oops, forgot to upgrade about 15 years ago because it was going so well. Now it's a classic! "

Sure sign of excellence. Nice one mate.

Have you thought of ( much tougher+cheaper ) powder coating and then sourcing the decals elswhere?

If you email the Reynolds website asking for 531 decals with frame No., manufacturer and leave your postal address, they should send some stickers to you for free. http://reynoldstechnology.biz/contact.php
