It is just one of them bikes i would of liked to own all them years ago and will sit nicely with the Marin and Specialized in the shed of Doom. If by any chance someone out there has a rear wheel with a black lx hub and grey Mavic D521 i would be interested in that to.Ha philistine you said i would never join

Thanks for the offer but as i have got older i seem to have developed an ocd about miss matching parts, i know it is bad the other day i noticed one silver and one black furrel on my shifter cables and just had to change them. so i think a 121 and a 521 would just mess with my shui way to much, probably because threw miss guided adventures things got broken and nothing matched on my bikes all them years ago. but thanks again for the offer

I have this frameset, any interest?
It’s a bit rough with plenty of scratches and a dent but no structural issues.

About that wheel....
There's some sets on the ebay for around the 100 mark, more than I'd pay personally but options none the less.

I have an lx rear hub, a grey 521 rim and some spokes that used to be on other examples of the above parts so should be the right length.
the rims a bit scratched but no dents or dings, and the hub spins nicely enough.
if you fancy building it yourself I could probably sort out sending the bits over, or I might even find time to stick it together some time before new year.
let me know if you are interested I'll dig out some details

Thanks guys both options are a consideration, pending price and how bad A the rim is scratched and B how big a dent and where it is on the frame. they are both a little more work than i was intending on, but would keep me out of the local constabulary's hair for a couple of weeks if you have any pics i would appreciate it.
