Looking for both front and rear mechs in good working order.

Rear mech - short-cage to suit 8-speed indexed transmission.

Front mech - double for 28.6mm diameter clamp-on mounting.

Drop me a line if you've something surplus that might suit; willing to pay sensible prices plus 1st Class UK P&P or can collect in person if reasonably local to Winchester.

Thanks in advance,
David

I'm pretty sure I have a front, do you have specific model number in mind?

Same guy has a rear mech too, but that's a long cage.

As long as it's a double with a 28.6mm clamp, not too fussed about which model - I think there are 3 variations; white decals, black decals with blue streak graphic and black decals with "SACHS" printed in blue. Any one of those would do nicely.

Thanks,
David

well it ticks all those boxes! it's in good nick with very strong spring, logos practically worn away and bit of rust in bolt heads... would definitely polish up really nicely though:

Front mech now sorted (many thanks to Dead Rats), still on the hunt for a rear though. As an afterthought, a short-cage Quarz MTB rear mech would also do the job, these were roughly equivalent to New Success.

Edit: the other option is the Regina America 1992 mech, which is a re-badged early 90s New Success. Got my eye on one via eBay, will post an update if bid is successful.
