Right, here's the bits I still need.. cheap and cheerful please:

Almost there... need to get my act together and get the thing polished.

***Now need a 9 speed chain (Funny how these things snowball)*** - Sorted

26.8 Seatpost - preferably black - Sorted

Semi integrated headset 1 1/8" Threadless, 44mm O/D bearing cups - Ordered

Saddle - not fussed as to brand etc... something soft and squishy - Sorted pending comfort testing

Grips - Again.. comfort is the key, preferably black - - Sorted

Bottom Bracket - 68mm Shell and around a 110mm axle I think (Need to measure the crap one I've got in there atm and make sure chainset fits) - Sorted

Cable set - Ordered off the bay

Rear Wheel needed, possibly front too. Disc hubs, Rear preferably with cassette. Don't need anything fancy, just cheap. - Now sorted.

Cheap and cheerful rear shock for the wife's saracen BSO. The one that's on there is completely shot and it rides like a clown's bike. 6" long... I'll check the width of the mountings tonight. Sorted... managed to butcher one I had lying about

Needs to be as cheap as possible, as I'm building the bike up for my Leeds - Liverpool charity ride in September.

One final question - is it acceptable to post a link to this thread in the Pre 98 wanted forum as well?

I may be able to help with a cheap shock (I have a coil one that's 5 3/4" long) and a saddle (is that for the lady or yourself?)... let me know and I'll PM you a price :D

I have a set of disc wheels for sale, black mavic rims, black DT spokes, and black shimano hubs
Comes with a very low mileage shimano 9 speed cassette too

I have a for sale thread with pictures of them on here if you would like to look at them?

I have them for sale at £60 posted, but will sell them to you for £50 posted now.

They are in extremely good condition
