Hi all, new here, just thought I'd say hello and show you the pair of prestons I've put back together and repairing them after buying them off eBay a few weeks ago. Apologies to the enthusiasts who will note the cheap non xtr chainsets and other changes from normal, but I'm afraid my pocket didn't stretch to much after buying them.

Hi, could you put a larger picture or link to one up. Then we can really see the non-xtr chain set ;-)

Where they difficult to get going again or just a cleanup and go?

Hi, they were in pretty bad shape tbh. Pivot bearing worn out and rear shock bushes as well, luckily he had 2 upgrade bushing kits , I was just about to replace the 2nd but thought I'd grab a photo opportunity. I also had to make the disc caliper mounts, I will continue to get them back to original condition as and when money and time allow, but for now I need to service the 3 air shocks and then enjoy them.
