Hi,

If you get stuck its easy to strip / convert an old wheel skewer to suit the seat QR length.

Repo seat post parts are available off the forum (I will find you the link if you want).

It would be possible to pick up one scabby wheel skewer, strip and refurb it with some new bits and have it reanodised - it would probably look better and be cheaper than finding a good one second hand ... ?

Good luck :D

WD :D

Thanks for the suggestion, if you have the repo link, i'd like to see how they look.

So anyone have an original that's spare that they can pass on to me? :)

So long as the lever part isn't to scratched up (to let corrosion in) they should re-anodise well :D

Prepped, with some of my home made bits :

And then before I part polished them :

I have my name on the next list of spares to :D
